The two-day Youth Parliament Session organised by Vijayawada Needs U concluded on Sunday. The session, aimed at creating awareness amongst the youth about the parliamentary proceedings, evoked a good response. The initiative of Vijayawada Needs U was appreciated by leaders of various political parties, educationalists and social activists, as it would motivate youth to develop leadership qualities and join politics to cleanse the system.
Students from more than 10 colleges from the city, NIT, Delhi, and colleges in Vizag were shortlisted for the event. About 30 students took part in the event representing the People’s Party of Reneta and Lead Reneta Party. According to the event organisers, Reneta symbolised India. The ruling party and opposition discussed ‘Prevention of Rape’ and ‘Taxation on Tobacco’ bills on the second day of the session.
Bilkis Tiara, a BDS graduate, introduced the Prevention of Rape Bill as the Prime Minister of Reneta on behalf of the People’s Party. After discussing the Bill for more than two hours, the House passed it. The Taxation on Tobacco Bill proposed by the opposition party was also passed after discussion. It is certainly worth taking into consideration the views expressed by youngsters participating in the mock session for strengthening the democratic system in the country. Speaker K Sravan said that copies of the bills passed in the Youth Parliament Session would be sent to lawmakers and the city Mayor for consideration.
