A new national-level students group has been formed to promote social causes and initiate the development of a new generation of social activists. The group namely Campus Front of India was formally launched on November 7 in New Delhi. Students from various states across the country were present at this launch that took place at the India International Centre.
As A. Mohamed Yusuff, General Convenor of the Campus Front puts it , the aim of this group is primarily to empower campuses and strive for the oppressed sections of society .
“Students are considered as an important section which can play a crucial role in building the society. Students are the privileged section of the society who has the power of education, vision and knowledge with them which is denied to most of the marginalized sections of the society. Unfortunately we have seen a decline in student activism among students for the last few decades. Students movements once considered one of the most powerful catalyst of any cause have now turned into mere pawns of their political mentors. In this critical juncture Campus Front will strive for the revival of student’s power and motivate students to lead social movements,” he added.
