About Bharatiya Chhatra Sansad (Indian Student Parliament)
The Father of the Nation Mahatma Gandhi once said: “BE THE CHANGE YOU WISH TO SEE.”
We all talk about the change we want in governance but are not willing to contribute where it matters the most. Transparent and accountable governance will remain a far-fetched idea unless spirited, educated and trained young men and women participate in political and democratic processes.
The BCS is a classroom that provides political coaching to nearly 10,000 students in the age group of 18-25. It provides lessons on the functioning of a democracy and encourages the students to serve society by entering public life and attaining leadership roles.
It is aimed at enhancing the roles and relevance of youth in democratic institutions such as political parties, social organizations, colleges, universities, and public institutions. We are trying to create an environment so that committed, educated and spirited youth participate in democratic polity and contribute to evolving a healthy, democratic system.
It is a truly apolitical outfit and does not engage in any mainstream party politics. It is transforming the outlook of youth and reaffirming their respect for democracy and its institutions. It is raising the extent of their involvement, their access and their say in political and democratic processes.
The platform has also turned out to be a bridge between political parties and the aspiring youth, willing to choose politics as a career.
- Connect Politically / Socially active youth of India on one platform for the common purpose of strengthening democracy and to inculcate a national vision.
- Create in them respect for politics, political leaders, democracy and its institutions and train them for future leadership of the country.
- Raise their awareness, intellect, and sensitivity to social & political issues, encourage and motivate students to embrace public life in service to the nation.
- Promote national and regional understanding, inter-cultural dialogue and diversity of ideas and practices.
- Contribute to the personal skills development of Indian youth.
- Provide a forum in which young people can express their own opinions, interact with eminent personalities from different spectrums of life, take pledge to uphold democratic values, pass resolutions for social good and submit it to the government for consideration and action.
- Create energetic ‘ambassadors’ of democracy to replicate the democratic values and influence their peers who are not participants of BCS.
