Students for Society (SFS) organised a play at the Student Centre on Monday afternoon. The play was as part of their electioneering.

The student body had staged various agitations earlier this year, including a protest against fee hike, which forced PU to rollback its decision. This would be the outfit’s fisrt elections.

The satirical play staged by the group was a dig at the state of student politics. The play also criticized the anti-women trends prevalent in student organizations, in which their participation is limited to just voting, with many organizations still hesitant to allow declare girl candidates for the office of president.

“Through our play we want to spread the message to students to vote consciously. Many organisations are affiliated to mainstream political parties which work to please their political bosses and make their political careers. After elections the students and students’ rights are pushed aside. But our organisation has always upheld and struggled for students’ rights,” said Amandeep Kaur, the presidential candidate of the party.

The National Students Union of India (NSUI) also staged a play at the student centre highlighting its achievements of the past year.
