ABVP organises Chhatra Garjana rally ahead of nomination day

After the announcement of the Delhi University Student Union election, preparations for the same are going on at the war front. The ABVP (Akhil Bhartiya Vidyarthi Parishad), which has been winning this election for the last two times, organised a “Chhatra Garjana” rally in front of the Arts Faculty building.
The rally advocates for free bus service around the campus, a Metro concession pass for students, a functional placement cell in colleges, the construction of new hostels, and many more. Speaking with TDG, Shiwangi Kharwal, ABVP Delhi State Girl’s Coordinator, highlighted the urgent need for solutions to the challenges faced by female students.
She stated, “Girls studying at Delhi University should not encounter obstacles like inadequate hostels, subpar sanitary facilities, or security concerns that force them to abandon their education. We call upon the university to take immediate steps, such as installing sanitary pad vending machines and establishing pink booths near every college.
Harsh Attri, ABVP Delhi State Secretary, emphasised the pressing issues faced by the prestigious institution. He stated, “Despite its esteemed reputation, Delhi University grapples with infrastructure deficiencies, fee disparities, and a lack of centralised hostel allotment procedures.
On commenting upon this rally, National Student Union of India (NSUI) state president Kunal Sherawat told TDG that this rally purely consists of outsiders. ABVP is losing students as they have issued the same manifesto that was there in the previous two elections. Also, there were no female students from women’s colleges, and they got permission for this rally while there are restrictions for other organisations. He also said that students studying at DU cannot afford such luxury cars as those present at the rally. The presence of luxury cars and posters on every wall and pole around the university raises serious concern about the guidelines issued by the Lyngdoh Committee. The total expenditure by a candidate is limited to 5,000 rupees. However, the candidates are spending way more than the limit.
