National Students’ Union of India (NSUI) organised an event at Jantar Mantar on Monday, 30th December 2013 to celebrate the passing of the Lokpal Bill. There were a slew of artistes lined up for today’s event that included DJ Sumit Sethi and Traffic Jam, a band from the North-east. It was attended by students and supporters of NSUI across the country from various universities. Students were told as to how the Lokpal Bill will usher in a new era by eradicating corruption and reinstating the administration and the governance. Students also participated in a mass signature campaign and pledged to carry on the initiative until all the pending anti-corruption bills are passed.

Rohit Chaudhary, President, NSUI said, “Today is just the beginning, thousands of students are gathered here to raise their voice that corruption is not tolerable at any cost. We demand immediate passage of The Whistle Blowers Protection Bill, The Judicial Standards and Accountability Bill,  The Right of Citizens for Time Bound Delivery of Goods and Services and Redressal of their Grievances Bill, Prevention of Corruption (Amendment) Bill, The Public Procurement Bill, The Prevention of Bribery of Foreign Public Officials and Officials of Public International Organizations Bill. We will launch the ‘Student Stand Against Corruption’ movement in all the states and carry on this fight until the pending Bills are passed. On 15th January 2014, we shall gather here again and observe a hunger strike.”
