Ranchi, Jan. 5: The national president of National Students Union of India (NUSI) today promised to provide all resources necessary for the growth of the body in the state.
I.B. Hyden, the newly elected president of NUSI, who hails from Kerala, said: “It is my first visit to the state. I am trying to gather information about this tribal heartland and make Jharkhand NSUI unit stronger in the days to come.”
Hyden was addressing a huge gathering of NSUI members from across the state at the Central Library hall of Ranchi College today. He was accompanied by NSUI secretary Ashok Baseria. Jaishankar Pathak, the president of State Youth Congress, was also present.
A member of NSUI, Jharkhand, Manmohan said: “Around 1,500 new universities will be opened shortly in India. This is the vision of Rahul Gandhi, the dynamic leader and torchbearer of NSUI. It is he who has shown the path of success by requesting the government to allot 10 per cent of the total budget to education.”
Manmohan also urged Hyden to publish a fortnightly or monthly journal of NSUI so that their brethren residing in remote areas can be informed about their activities.
Pathak said under Rahul Gandhi’s leadership, a transparency has been achieved in the working style of NSUI.
Parvinder Singh, the president of NSUI, Jharkhand, said everyone has to come forward to make this state a progressive one.
“We resolve to combat the Naxalism menace by helping the state government,” Singh said.
