"With the introduction of National Education Policy (NEP), DU has seen policies like Four-Year Undergraduate Programme (FYUP) being imposed on students. The NEP 2020 resulted in massive fee hikes in various colleges and has failed to resolve the issues of lack of hostels for students. "Similarly, the price rise has contributed to escalating costs for students, thereby making the long-standing demand of free metro passes important," AISA's manifesto read.
The left-backed group also promised to focus on the need of gender sensitisation committee against sexual harassment on campus. The election is slated to take place on September 22 after a gap of four years.
It could not be held in 2020 and 2021 due to COVID-19 while disruptions to the academic calendar prevented their conduct in 2022. AISA candidate Aiyesha Ahmad Khan filed her nomination for the post of president, Anushka Choudhary for the post of vice president, Aditya Pratap Singh for the post of secretary, and Anjali Kumari for the post of joint Secretary.
While Aiyesha Ahmad Khan is a student of Miranda House College and hails from Patna, Anushka Choudhary is a student of the Law Faculty at Delhi University and is a resident of Bahadurgarh in Haryana. Aditya Pratap Singh enrolled in the University in 2019 and has been an AISA activist since and Anjali Kumari is a first-year student from Miranda House.
