Political youth leaders express their views on students’ manifesto at an event in Pune

Young political leaders from the city interacted with students from various colleges and said that the government is taking efforts to provide job opportunities to the youth. However, a skill manifesto is also needed.

Ravikant Varpe, state vice-president of the Nationalist Congress Party youth organisation said, “Today many political parties may have funds to spend on various schemes, but a great vision and thought can take this country ahead. We stand with the youths who are facing problems while studying in Pune. There is struggle in every step of life and when there is struggle there is opportunity. I believe in an education system that increases the capability and skills of a student. So I support the manifesto and demands given by this organisation and will work hand in hand with them.”

Varpe was speaking at a programme organised by Students Helping Hand’ organisation on Thursday, where youth leaders from different political parties expressed their views about ‘Students’ manifesto’ for Lok Sabha elections 2019. Students from various city-based colleges were present for this programme at Patrakar Bhavan in Navi peth.

Issues related to students are never given priority in election manifestos of political parties and hence, Kuldeep Ambekar founder president of Students Helping Hands released their own manifesto.

Ram Satpute , Bharatiya Janata Party’s state-level Yuva Morcha vice-president said, “Our government is working hard to give job opportunities to the youth. Skill manifesto is also needed along with job demands for the youth.”

Gopichand Padalkar, youth leader from Sangli said, “It is good that organisations like Students Helping Hand are coming forward to help the youth. Manifesto of most political copies are made by public relation companies and the promises are never fulfilled. There are at least 450 tribes and communities in India who are not given opportunity in politics, students like you can come forward and make a big change.”
