GK NEWS NETWORK
Srinagar July 2: The National Conference today said that the student politics is the need of the hour and they should take a lead role in not only the universities but also commit themselves towards the betterment of the student community.
“The situation has improved to a level where student can and should activate themselves to help their colleagues in order to solve their problems, you are the future of our better tomorrow, and you have to take a lead, nobody can or should ignore your aspiration”, said NC Spokesman, Tanvir Sadiq, in a series of meeting with students of different colleges and representatives of the Student Welfare Association of Kashmir (SWAK).
“Omar Abdullah is a youth icon and wants the youth, especially the students to come forward and shape their own destiny,” said Tanvir “I understand that from past two decades, the student activism might have been curbed on the campus but since Omar Sahib is keen we will find out a way to re-start the concept of unions because we are aware that the youth of a nation are the trustees of posterity,” he added.
“All over the world young men and woman have become aware about their rights and the positive contribution they can make, student unions are need of the hour to make a significant impact on the socio-political outlook of the student community” said Tanvir “Since student politics has taken shape in Islamic University (IU) and also to a large extent in the Kashmir University (KU) the revival of student unions at KU should be considered as it can bring a significant improvement in the student – teacher relationship, they should be given a platform to express themselves” said Tanvir.
“I see a lot of excitement, jubilation, not only this; students have already started visualizing the importance of having a union. While majority of the students see it as a positive development, others are skeptical that its presence might take a shape of 'goonda raj, However, if other universities can tackle it so can we,” said Tanvir.
“We want students to have full freedom to highlight their problems, while we have empowered Panchayats the basic tenet of democracy we are in favour of empowering the student community as well,” said Tanvir.
“This may throw up some future leaders who can finesse their leadership qualities at such early stages of their lives” he added.
