AAP launches students wing in Maha, to expand base in a month

Mumbai, July 10: The Aam Aadmi Party will expand its students and youth wing across Maharashtra within a month in order to reach out to the young generation, a state party leader said today.

The AAP's state unit had yesterday announced the launch of its Chhatra Yuva Sangharsh Samiti (CYSS), a student and youth wing along with 'Graduate's Forum' with the purpose of making a foray into student politics.

"We would be having six regions. Dr Sushant Bolkar has been appointed as head of Mumbai Metropolitan Region (MMR)," AAP's Maharashtra unit executive member and CYSS in-charge Farooque Ahmed told to media today.

"In the other five regions of Konkan, North Maharashtra, Western Maharashtra, Marathwada and Vidarbha, the heads would be appointed soon," he said.

"Youth are the foundation of tomorrow's India and have a crucial role to play in reforming politics. CYSS is an honest attempt to create leaders and allocate responsible positions to youth," AAP's state convener Subhash Ware said.

"AAP has initiated its foray into student politics and going by the enormous support from students and party's cadre, the CYSS will emerge as a force to reckon with across the state," he said.

He alleged that traditional political parties haven't done justice to students' issues.

"They have merely reduced the students to pawn in the game of petty politics. This is exactly what CYSS is attempting to change," Ware added.
