Chatra Yuva Sangharsh Samiti (CYSS) of Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) student wing on Thursday announced office-bearers for its Delhi University (DU) unit, ahead of the Delhi University Students Union (DUSU) elections in September.
The Chatra Yuva Sangharsh Samiti (CYSS) of the AAP has vowed to fight the elections on issues like “positive politics” and “commercialization of education”, among others.
The CYSS hopes to give a competition to two major political parties on the campus – ABVP (Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad), student wing of the BJP, and NSUI (National Students Union of India), student wing of the Congress.
Vikas Kadyan has been given the responsibility of President, and the seven others Sadaf Iqra Khan, Chandra Mani Dev, Suraj Bhan, Saibi Singh, Jai Thakur, Pranay Malhotra and Mukesh Paman have been appointed as Deputy Presidents.
Suraj Jha has been appointed the General Secretary, while Nidhi Ratan will be the Secretary of CYSS. Rohit Yadav and Ranjit Singh have been labelled as the Joint Secretaries, and Ramapari Mishra and Pankaj Indora will be the Social Media Incharge.
“From reducing Metro fares to providing a special bus service between the hostel and campus, we will take up issues on which students have been cheated for years by the ABVP and NSUI,” a statement made by CYSS state unit General Secretary Hariom Prabhakar.
Apart from ABVP and NSUI, the youth wing of Swaraj Abhiyan q- Youth for Swaraj (YFS) – and left-wing student organisation AISA (All India Students Association) both will be trying to better its tally in elections this year.
