Jan Ki Baat Event – Street Debate

Jan Ki Baat Event - Street Debate

Jan Ki Baat collaborates with the Delhi University Students Union to organize a street-debate, an Oxford Union Format Youth Debate on the 2016 Budget on 4th March 2016, 6:30pm onwards. A Jan Ki Baat selfie-poll found out that 94% of the youth within the 16-28 age group are now aware of the contents of this year’s Budget portfolio and the speech given by the Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley. The street-debate would witness the BJP spokesman Sudesh Verma, Advocate General from Nagaland Vikramjeet Banerjee, Saket Bahuguna, the National Media Convenor of the BJP, battle it out with their opponents: Rajiv Gowda of Congress, National Student Union of India’s Neeraj Mishra, Sunny Dhiman from the Jawaharlal Nehru University, the Director of CCS research Rohan Joshi and the author of UnpackED Karthik Dinne. The team of Jan Ki Baat is grateful for the help of the Delhi Police Administration.

The speakers at the debate involve eminent politicians, student leaders and young professionals from the civil society, all individuals from diverse fields and of different political orientations. The debate promises to be a wholesome experience, dissecting the 2016 Union Budget in and according to their own ideological inclinations.

A street-debate in the Faculty of Arts, Delhi University, would encourage the cultivation of an alert, informative student. The lack of awareness that currently exists within the student community must be amended holistically, something that Jan Ki Baat hopes to help with.
