Ten women to serve as one-day DUSU president starting Navratri

Ten women students will serve as DUSU president for one day starting from the first day of Navratri, the ABVP-led students union said on Wednesday. The Delhi University Students Union will declare their names on Friday with the first of these students slated to take the charge on April 9. “On each day of the Navratri, a woman will head the DUSU as its president exhibiting Narishakti. We have taken this initiative to boost women representation in students politics,” DUSU president Tushar Dedha said. He added that these one-day DUSU presidents will have all the powers of the chair and will be allowed to take decisions concerning students while they hold the position. Currently, the four member panel of the DUSU has only one woman, Aprajita, appointed as the secretary. The names of the ten women DUSU presidents will be selected from a contest to write an article on ‘The role of women in making Viksit Bharat’.
