An educational philosopher says, “Give the pupils something to do, not something to learn, and when the doing is of such a nature as to demand thinking, learning naturally results.”
With a view to strengthening the roots of democracy, inculcate healthy habits of discipline, tolerance of the views of others and to enable the student community to understand the working of our Parliamentary institutions, the Ministry of Parliamentary Affairs has introduced the Scheme of National Youth Parliament Competition for Universities/Colleges/Schools throughout the country. These competitions are conducted on an annual basis in each academic year and students of our college also enacted such parliamentary proceedings every year and very often they secure position in district level and divisional level competition. Through this programme they show how members of parliament discuss issues, bills are moved and passed by voting and other functional aspects. The event is a great success in terms of generating enthusiasm and interest among the students as reflected in their active participation in the event. The subjects generally selected for discussion in Youth Parliament is as far as possible non-controversial. Matters raised in the Youth Parliament may relate to the subjects of welfare activities, social justice, social reforms, economic development, communal harmony, education, welfare schemes of the govt, health, students’ discipline etc. No direct or indirect remarks are made in the speeches so as to cast aspersion on the political parties or leaders/ persons etc.
