Chandigarh, August 28 

Kanupriya (22) from Zoology Department is the presidential candidate of the Students for Society (SFS), the largest leftist party on Panjab University campus. 

She is a student of MSc-IInd year and joined the department in 2014. She hails from Patti town in Punjab. Her mother is a nurse, while her father is in a private job. 

“I came in contact with the party in 2014. In 2015, we fought against a sexual harassment case,” she said.

“We want to turn the PU Campus Students Council (PUCSC) into a pressure group. Fair hostel allotment, 24-hour open girls’ hostels are our issues. The students have to decide what kind of politics they want,” she said.

When asked that a woman has never been on president’s post in the PU and will this move be successful this time, she said: “Our struggle for 24-hour open girls’ hostels and against fascism led us choose a woman candidate.”
