Show of Strength: Ahead of Presidential Debate, ABVP, BAPSA, and Left Alliance Conduct Mashaal Juloos(es)

5 September 2017 | Wednesday: Upholding the annual tradition of the mashaal juloos before Student Union elections every year, three major political groups contesting in this year’s election organised marches in the campus to assert their dominance and numbers before the upcoming polls on 8 September.

Birsa Ambedkar Phule Students Organisation (BAPSA) held the march on 3 September from Ganga Dhaba to Chandrabhaga Hostel. Around 200 students participated in the march which was led by BAPSA’s central panel candidates: Shabana for President, Subodh for Vice President, Karam for General Secretary, and Vinod for Joint Secretary. The march saw participation from students across campus, but especially of differently abled students; BAPSA is the only political group this year to field a handicapped candidate.
