  5. BRIJESH YADAV
    FOR CLC STUDENT UNION PRESIDENT

    Prarambh- Foundation of Change

    Manifestos are the best way to get to know the intentions, motives and views of the candidate and articulate his capabilities and responsibilities which the desired post entails. I thought it would be best to keep it in Q&A form to move away from the monologue pattern. The stepping stone towards EFFICIENT, FAIR, RESPONSIBLE AND TRANSPARENT STUDENT UNION.

    WHY DO I WANT TO BE CLC STUDENT UNION PRESIDENT?

    The CLC Student Union is the only body in our college directly answerable to CLC students and I think a good president has the potential to make a fundamental difference to your university experience. In my time so far at CLC I’ve seen how CLC works, as a student, as an elected College Councillor (CC) and as a candidate for the post of president. Because of this I have not only gained immense understanding of college operations but also developed a desire to work on behalf of our students body to get us the best deal. Acting on this desire in addition to my academics has been challenging as well as rewarding. Given the opportunity to assume the responsibilities full time I feel I could achieve a whole lot.

    WHAT HAVE I DONE TILL NOW?- TIME TO REWIND

    So whatever small or big me and my team have achieved or initiated till now is based on the suggestions of the THINK TANK and WE ATTEMPTED TO DELIVER BEFORE BEING ELECTED.

    * Rectified water coolers and protested for successful approval of funds for water purifiers- DRINKING WATER ISSUE.

    * Drafted a suitable and flexible INTERNSHIP PROGRAMME available for the entire year.
