With a view to answer all the queries of the students of Delhi University and redress any of their grievances, the National Students’ Union of India (NSUI) is organising a Vidyarthi Panchayat on 29th July, 2013.
This event will be held in the Conference Centre opposite Arts Faculty at 10: 00 a.m for the entire student body of Delhi University. Not only will Vice Chancellor Dinesh Singh be present in the ‘Panchayat’, but Dr. Shashi Tharoor, Human Resource Development Minister will be present as well.
The announcement about the same came through a tweet from Angellica Aribam, National Secretary, NSUI.

Ashok Bhagat, Cultural Secretary, DUSU says, “Students can ask about anything that concerns them, unless and until it does not offend anyone.” When asked whether the concept was anything similar to VC’s Darbar, he said, “This is a little different. At that time several questions went unanswered, this time we will make sure every concern and query is answered at the Vidyarthi Panchayat.”
Students can talk about ragging issues, FYUP, hectic timetables or anything else that has been bothering them.
If in case you are around in campus, it might be an interesting idea to visit the “Vidyarthi Panchayat”. With both Dr. Shashi Tharoor and VC Dinesh Singh present to listen to students’ concerns, it might be a good opportunity to be heard. All Delhi University students can attend the Vidyarthi Panchayat, provided they are carrying their college ID cards.
