Any institution is made up of the people and students, being primary stakeholders in the University system, have major role to play in various ways. I thought it a good idea to get comprehensive information on the working of the Students’ Union. If the facilities in the University are in poor condition even with presence of an elected Students' body and we are not being provided what we are entitled to as students, we have a right to know “why”….
Hence, this RTI application- a small step towards Governance and Participation…. :)

- Slogans such as- Don’t Vote Don’t Crib !
- Huge campaign by all political outfits to attend the University General Body Meeting (UGBM) at the end of the term of the last Students’ Union where one can ‘supposedly’ get answer to all questions from the Union. What one can actually witness there is complete violation of democratic values, there is no place for meaningful public dialogue there. I remember the speech by Prof. Amartya Sen, during the First Hyderabad Lecture at the UoH on December 19, 2013, where he mentioned about Dr. B R Ambedkar’s commandments – Educate, Organize, Agitate – to bring the change in a democratic setup and relevance of people’s ability to talk to each other in a meaningful manner that makes all the difference in a democracy.
