The craze for Panjab University Campus Students’ Council (PUCSC) elections seems to be in full swing. On Saturday, the Himachal Pradesh Students’ Union (HPSU) announced the panel for upcoming Panjab University student union elections. Also keeping in mind the vote bank, the student organisations of Panjab University are going all out to attract women by giving them proper representation as office-bearers. This is all so because 70 percent of the students on the campus are women. Also because the two prominent student outfits – Students Organization of India (SOI) and National Students’ Union of India (NSUI) want more and more girls to come forward and contest for key posts in the elections.
The girls wing panel thus announced by SOI at a restaurant on Sector 14 campus for campaigning includes : Arshdeep Mangat as the president, Tavleen Sandhu as the chairman, Avantika Thakur and Riya Chugh as senior vice-presidents, Prabhleen Nagra, Sonali Singla, Priya Sharma as vice-presidents, Khusboo Tandom, Reetinder Reet Kaur as general secretaries, Navjot Kaur, Tannya Bedi, Nishtha, Shagun Sharma as secretaries and Ridhima Sharma as joint secretary.
The girls wing panel thus announced by NSUI at the Indian Coffee House, Student Centre for campaigning includes : Ashima Awasthi as the campus president (south) and Pallavi Klair as campus president (north). Aditi Malik and Parul Negi as the vice-president, while Shaan Arora and Ibaadat have been appointed the general secretary. Harpreet and Samreet as joint secretaries, Sukhman as party in-charge, Sharan and Bharat Negi as campus in-charge of south and north, respectively, Arushi (north) and Triveni Mehta (south) as party convenors and Anushka as the election in-charge.
All in all, this is a display of the strength of the female, to empower girls that they can do a lot more. “This election is to bring the women to the forefront. Since they are the pillars of our party, the panel was decided keeping in view the party’s main agenda – empowering the female students of the university,” NSUI member Siya Minocha said. Not only this following announcement of the panel, there was a short meeting and the girls’ team showed a lot of fervour and commitment.
