[ZESTCaste] Focus on SC/ST students’ plight: Rahul

Focus on SC/ST students' plight: Rahul

Express News Service Posted online: Fri Feb 11 2011, 02:44 hrs
Lucknow : At the national executive meet of newly elected office
bearers of National Student Union of India in Lucknow on Thursday,
AICC General Secretary Rahul Gandhi reviewed the organisation's work
in each state.

Around 60 newly elected office-bearers of the NSUI attended the two
-day meet — Lakshya 2011 — which was held out of Delhi for the first
time to decide the action plan for the year ahead.

During the review, Rahul specifically mentioned efforts of the UP
state unit in highlighting the plight of students in SC/ST hostels and
their poor condition through a detailed study. He asked the national
executive to take up similar study in other parts of the country as
well and make it more aggressive.

He told the gathering that how a team of NSUI volunteers headed by
national secretary Bharat Kumar had prepared a detailed study on SC/ST
hostels in UP and informed the members that how one of the Governors
had also appreciated the work done by them in preparing the report.

"A decision was taken in the national executive meet of NSUI to take
this programme nationally. The survey will now be done in every state
and a massive agitation would be launched in states where government
has turned a blind eye towards SC/ST students. The launch of this
national agitation will be done in Uttar Pradesh," informed Dwijendra
Tripathi, UPCC spokesperson.

Rahul also asked the NSUI leaders to start preparing three months'
plan and call such meetings once in three months rather on the annual
basis. He asked the members to be focused and aggressive in their
efforts rather than leaving the issues mid-way.

When a member asked Rahul about their future in the organisation,
Rahul got a bit irritated and told him that they will have to make
their identity through their work.

He told the newly elected executive members to raise the issues at the
grassroots level and advised them to take up issue-based programmes
across the country for greater impact. At the end of the NSUI meet,
Rahul left for Delhi in the evening.
