Gujarat elections 2017 | Poll-itical expression? Unemployed youth hunting for ‘vikas’

Piqued by the sound of ‘Vikas Gando Thayo che and Hoon Choo Vikas’, a group of 15 youth, mostly from Gujarat and claiming to be unemployed, have now decided to go hunt for the ‘elusive Vikas’.The youth have decided to take out a ‘Vikas Khoj Yatra’ which will begin from Kirti Mandir in Porbandar, Mahatma Gandhi’s birthplace, and will travel through 11 districts to end at the Sabarmati Ashram in Ahmedabad.”At each destination, we will gather youth and burn photocopies of our degrees. It is because they are useless. We have remained unemployed,” said Vishwanath Vaghela, 30, who claims to be unemployed for the last seven years.He graduated with a Masters degree in Chemistry from Bhavans College in Ahmedabad in 2010. “After graduation, I was offered a job in a medical company for Rs8500 a month. Given the low salary, I just felt that my Masters degree was a waste,” said Vaghela. He said he later tried to turn entrepreneur with a ‘Maggi Laari’ (handcart selling Maggi) but that too did not work out.Vaghela, who still claims to be unemployed, said the idea came to him and his friends after many of them landed at the Maruti facility in Hansalpur after a fake job ad in a social media site in the early months of 2017.”We waited there for the entire day and realised it was a hoax. It also made me realise how desperate the youth are for employment,” said Vaghela. He said around 15 youth, of which 12 are from Gujarat, will take out the yatra in a tempo.”We have each contributed Rs3,000 to fund the yatra. We aren’t being funded by anyone. We just want to know where is the vikas and why is it that we are not able to get jobs in a place where so much Vikas is happening,” said Vaghela who said the yatra did not have any political affiliation.Vaghela, however, was associated with the NSUI during his student days and is now a member of the youth Congress. He, however, reiterated that this is not a political rally. He said they have urged youth, particularly unemployed youth, to join them in every major city that they pass through.Kapil Audich, a second year MBA student from Ahmedabad who is joining the yatra said unemployment is a big problem with most of the graduates. “I am a civil engineer and ended up doing a job that paid just Rs8000 for two years. I am now doing MBA in the hope that my prospects will improve but I have my doubts,” said Audich.‘Non-political’Though the yatra claims to be non-political, Vishwanath Vaghela one of the youth leading the yatra is a former member of NSUI and the Youth CongressVikas Khoj Yatra will begin at Kirti Mandir in Porbandar and end at Sabarmati Ashram with unemployed youth burning photocopies of their degrees.

Ramjas row to set tone for DUSU elections

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>Months after the Ramjas college incident rattled the entire University, it will now set the tone for this year’s Delhi University Student Union (DUSU) elections. The Student wings of all the major political parties — that have already been milking using the incident as a protest plank — are set to draw their manifestos revolving around the incident. The ABVP, which drew criticism for ‘instigating’ the clashes in Ramjas, will float “nationalism” as its main campaign theme.”There will be no compromise with our nationalist ideology. We can never allow anti-national elements or slogans at our campus,” said Saket Bahuguna, National media convener, ABVP.”ABVP will try to polarise students on the Ramjas issue, but we need to make students aware of the misinformation that was fed to them.Delhi police also informed the court recently that the footage of the alleged anti-national slogans were doctored,” said Kawalpreet Kaur, President, AISA, Delhi. The student wing of Congress — National Students Union of India (NSUI) — which is set to give a cut-throat competition to ABVP, will also tow the Ramjas line.”We will soon start a campaign titled ‘Take back DU’ wherein we will ask DU students to help us fight ABVP’s hooliganism,” said Akshay Lakra, President, NSUI, Delhi.Meanwhile, Chhatra Yuva Sangharsh Samiti, the student-wing of the Aam Aadmi Party will once again not contest in the DUSU polls.”We may contest in college-level elections. We can’t be a part of DUSU polls knowing that it is contested on money, muscle power,” said Anmol Panwar, Spokesperson, CYSS.In the pastIn February, violent clashes broke out in Ramjas College when several students with left-backed AISA and RSS-backed ABVP attacked each other.The clashes followed the cancellation of an invitation to JNU student leaders Umar Khalid and Shehla Rashid at a seminar after ABVP objected.

NSUI polls: Low turnout should be a cause of concern

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>It seems that students are gradually losing interest in National Students’ Union of India in the state capital, Jaipur.During voting for NSUI state and district unit executive committees held at the Bani Park office on Friday, only 1,021 voters out of 6,000 voters turned up for casting their vote.Those who voted include 145 student leaders who are contesting for various posts of the student wing of Congress party. During the voting, the police detained 25 bogus voters.Notably, voting for state and district executive of the NSUI is being held in districts from June 12 to June 17.In this series, voting for NSUI state and Jaipur district unit committee started on Friday. On the first day, voting was held for 6,000 student voters of colleges whose names start with alphabet A up to alphabet L.On Saturday, nearly 5,000 voters from colleges with name starting from alphabet M to Z would be held.The low turnout on the first day of voting seems to indicate that nearly 7-10 voters voted for 145 candidates in fray. Meanwhile, it is also said that there was low turnout as the number of actual voters was less and NSUI had added bogus voters. However, bogus voting could not be held due to Congress Election Authority strictness.The Authority deterred around two dozen voters from casting bogus votes. The accused were detained by Bani Park police and later released after enquiry.Meanwhile, student leaders have been seeking votes in the name of former chief minister Ashok Gehlot and PCC chief Sachin Pilot. It is believed that groupism among senior leaders of the state unit of Congress party has percolated to the students wing, NSUI as well. Where NSUI state president candidate Abhishek Choudhary is being projected as a candidate supported by former CM Ashok Gehlot, another candidate Abhimanyu Poonia has been canvassing by projecting himself as a candidate backed by PCC chief Pilot.

CBSE blues: Students-parents protest agnst ‘faulty’ results in

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>The protest against alleged discrepancies in CBSE Class-XII results intensified today with the students’ wings of political parties joining the stir, even as a team from the board’s headquarters arrived here to sort out the issue. The Board officials said the issue will be resolved in 15 days. Meanwhile, the activists of the Biju Chhatra Janata Dal (BCJD) and the National Students’ Union of India joined the protest outside the CBSE’s regional office here. As the slogan-shouting demonstrators holding placards and banners demanded immediate re-evaluation of answer-sheets and declaration of withheld results, some BCJD workers tried to forcibly enter the premises of the CBSE regional office. A brief scuffle took place when the policemen present at the spot stopped the activists from entering the office. Demanding immediate steps to resolve the issue, activists of the NSUI burnt tyres and an effigy of Union Human Resource Development Minister Prakash Javadekar. Meanwhile, two senior officials from the CBSE’s head office, who were deputed by Javadekar to sort out the issue, held discussion with officials of the Bhubaneswar region office, which covers the states of Odisha, West Bengal and Chhattisgarh. The problem of the students would be looked into by 10 teams to be formed at the board’s regional centres, a CBSE official said. Steps have been taken to resolve the issue in 15 days, said CBSE assistant secretary Jagabandhu Pradhan. He, however, made it clear that there was no provision of re-evaluation of papers and only photocopies of answer sheets can be provided to the students who make a request for the same. Later in the evening, the students and their parents met Odisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik. Scores of students from schools under the Bhubaneswar region of the CBSE have alleged that they had secured poor marks due to faulty evaluation, while many others claimed their results were withheld without citing any reason. Concerned over the manner in which the CBSE XII Board results were announced, Patnaik had yesterday sent a letter to Javadekar seeking his intervention for providing relief to the affected students and parents. “I would request you to kindly look into the matter personally and issue appropriate directions to the CBSE authorities to rectify the situation in order to provide relief to the affected students on an urgent basis,” he had said. Stating that the results of 12th standard published by CBSE suffered from “gross discrepancies”, Patnaik said the students and parents were shocked at the manner in which the same were announced. Union Petroleum Minister Dharmendra Pradhan had also met the aggrieved students yesterday and taken up the matter with Javadekar for an early solution.(This article has not been edited by DNA’s editorial team and is auto-generated from an agency feed.)

Delhi University ruckus: Three cops suspended, Union HRD Minister Javadekar seeks report

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>Tensions continued to simmer across Delhi University’s North Campus with students’ groups holding protests against police “high-handedness” during the violent clashes in Ramjas College even as three policemen were suspended for “unprofessional” conduct.The case relating to yesterday’s violence was handed over to the Crime Branch as criticism against Delhi Police grew louder for allegedly not containing the RSS-backed ABVP during the clash with supporters of Left-affiliated AISA yesterday which left many injured.Union HRD Minister Prakash Javadekar said the government has sought a report from Delhi University on the violence. His ministerial colleague Kiren Rijiju said freedom of expression in the country doesn’t give right to make college campuses hub of anti-national activities. Delhi Police spokesperson and Special Commissioner (South West) said three policemen have been suspended for indulging in inappropriate and unprofessional conduct during the clashes at Ramjas yesterday. He said the Crime Branch will carry out a thorough investigation including complaints by rival student groups about the incident.Ramjas College yesterday witnessed large-scale violence between members of AISA and ABVP supporters. The genesis of the clash was an invite to JNU students Umar Khalid and Shehla Rashid to address a seminar on ‘Culture of Protests’ which was withdrawn by the college authorities following opposition by the ABVP. Classes remained suspended at Ramjas even as the authorities claimed it was due to “administrative reasons” and not because of the tense situation.Teachers at the SGTB Khalsa college claimed that a street play competition scheduled today had to be cancelled as “police had advised them against it in view of restoring normalcy and peace on campus”.While students of JNU and DU who are members of All India Students Association (AISA) staged a protest at the Delhi Police Headquarters at ITO, the Congress’ student wing National Students Union of India (NSUI) took out a peace march to Maurice Nagar police station, near the North Campus.ABVP, on its part staged a protest reiterating that “they will not allow any repeat of JNU like events in Delhi University”. A huge posse of police personnel was deployed on the north campus in the wake of the situation prevailing since yesterday even as DU Vice Chancellor Yogesh Tyagi urged the students not to resort to violence. “People and students should not lose their cool and maintain peace on the campus. Violence of any kind should be avoided. It will neither offer any solution nor lead to anything positive. The proctor office will look into the matter,” he said. When contacted, Ramjas Principal Rajender Kumar said the college teachers are meeting on Saturday to discuss the issue. “We (Ramjas teachers) are meeting on Saturday to discuss and take a united stand on what has happened and what needs to be done,” he said. Umar Khalid, who gave a miss to protests yesterday and the day before, joined the protesters at ITO in raising slogans of “ABVP se azaadi” and demanding registration of an FIR against them. “Only a few would have heard me if I had spoken at Ramjas. Now, the whole country is hearing me. The Delhi Police has not been able to file a charge sheet against me and they say I am an anti-national and I have links with terrorist groups,” he told protesters. Members of NSUI marched toward Maurice Nagar police station chanting “Raghupati Raghav Raj Ram” as they condemned violent action by the ABVP. “We have not called for a protest. We believe in non- violence and stand for freedom of speech and expression. We request everyone not to politicise the matter,” NSUI president Amrita Dhawan said. Around 50 members of the Akhil Bhartiya Vidyarthi Parishad also gathered outside the Arts faculty at North Campus and reiterated they will not allow “any repeat of JNU like events” in the university. “They are anti-nationals. They disrespect the tricolor and Bharat Mata and engage in such kind of activities. We will not allow any repeat of JNU like events in Delhi university,” President of Delhi University Students Union Amit Tanwar said. A few policemen and journalists were also roughed up yesterday during the violence after students from DU colleges and JNU gathered outside Ramjas College to hold a protest march against ABVP’s threat to call off the seminar. They were demanding action against the ABVP members, who had allegedly heckled and thrown stones at students gathered for a seminar at a conference hall where Umar Khalid was invited to speak.Before the march could take off, ABVP members reached the spot and clashed with the demonstrators despite heavy police deployment.

Ahead of V-Day, DU meet focuses on ‘Love Without Fear’

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>More than 400 Delhi University (DU) students gathered on Monday to attend a public meeting, titled ‘Love Without Fear’, addressing the issue of attacks on women’s autonomy within and outside campuses. The event was organised at the varsity’s Arts Faculty, amid heavy security and sloganeering, a day ahead of the Valentine’s Day. “The event was an attempt to create an understanding that one cannot be free to love, make choices or even be friends when such coveted institutions let us down at every instance,” Kawalpreet Kaur, a Delhi University (DU) student and President of the All India Students’Association (AISA) said.“How can we call ourselves modern when heinous mass molestation incidents happen in a city like Bangalore, which is known to be liberal? How we assert our autonomy when inter-religious love is termed as ‘love jihad’, and identifying oneself as LGBT is criminalised and stated to be unnatural?” she said.Kaur criticised Valentine’s Day attacks in the name of culture on young couples and said: “Every year, we see that Bajrang Dal activists, along with ABVP and RSS outfits, thrash young couples celebrating Valentine’s Day. With this event, we have challenged such moral policing and attacks on women’s autonomy and their freedom to choose their partners.” “These days, one has to speak of love inside barricades. People have to understand that love knows no boundaries, whether of caste or patriarchy,” DU Professor Apoorvanand said at the event that was attended by several poets, writers, and professors.Commenting on BJP’s Anti-Romeo squads to ‘protect girls in Uttar Pradesh’, Apoorvanand said, “Our culture has its roots in love. Anyone who wants to protect Indian culture should not propose the idea of Anti-Romeo squads but should speak for the freedom of men and women to love.”“When one speaks of love, one has to speak of caste and patriarchy as well. Love can break the shackles of caste and patriarchy. That is why there are such attacks on love by BJP and RSS-like outfits,” Sapna Chamaria, a Rajdhani College student said.Meanwhile, Congress-affiliated National Students Union of India (NSUI) announced to organise a ‘Love Parade’ to mark Valentine’s Day on Tuesday. A statement issued by NSUI said, “The right wing groups believe they can take away the freedom of the common man by imposing their diktats. They have been known for making bigoted statements, threatening those who choose to celebrate their love on this day,” NSUI said in a statement.

We would like secular forces to unite to defeat communal BJP,” he said. When pointed out that the main Opposition party has been lacking in campaigning, the former Chief Minister said, “The Goa electorate is highly conscious politically. They closely follow the activities of political parties. “The time of big rallies is over. Campaigning has now shifted door-to-door and on social media. I am happy to note that on Facebook Congress is miles ahead of AAP and BJP.” Singh said in the party’s campaign activists of NSUI, its student wing, and Youth Congress have made an impact on social media. “Congress always encourages youngsters, we have a fine young team.” The Congress leader said five former Chief Ministers from the party are still active in politics. “There are strong regional leaders in Goa.

They are very cooperative,” he added.(This article has not been edited by DNA’s editorial team and is auto-generated from an agency feed.)
