Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) president Sukhbir Singh Badal has given a clarion call to youth to be the change they wish to achieve, even as he announced the SAD would give fifty per cent representation in party tickets to youth in the next assembly elections in 2022.Addressing a meeting of Students Organisation of India headed by its Coordinator Parambans Singh Bunty Romana, the SAD president said the generation next would also be given due representation at all levels and units in the Akali Dal. “Even as we assure youth workers and leaders that their interests will be safeguarded in the SAD, I appeal to them to make their way up in the party through hard work and sacrifice. I have also done this and worked in the youth wing of the SAD before assuming more responsibilities”, he added.Speaking about the Panjab University, Mr Badal said the SAD had fulfilled all the demands raised by students through SOI. “Whatever I promised I delivered be it solar panels, gymnasium for girls, fans for various departments or washing machines for girls’ hostels.
In future also the SAD will continue to heed the demands of Panjab University students and work for their welfare”, he added.Mr Badal also personally interacted with students on the occasion including those who have been chosen to head SOI election panels in the Panjab Univeristy and associated colleges. He asked them to share their vision and expectations with him, saying the SAD would devise a comprehensive youth programme which would be implemented by the future SAD-BJP government. He also asked the youth to list problems being faced by them in the University and association colleges so that the SAD could take up these issues formally. The students were keen to get themselves photographed with the SAD president who obliged them gracefully.Senior student leaders present on the occasion included Bheem Waraich, Simranjit Singh Dhillon, Vicky Middukhera, Jasmeen Kang, Rashpal Hakumwala and Robin Brar were present on the occasion. meanwhile SOI Panel announced for Panjab University Chairman Mehnazpreet S Chahal President Prabhjit Karmuwalia Party President Harman Lubana Party Incharge Harjeet S Brar, Rupinder Sharma,Preet Kawal Sandhu,Suman Lakhar,Vishal Singh , also see the attachment for Detail panel.
