GUWAHATI, Dec 5 - The Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) today said that it has been taking up the issue of complete sealing of the Indo-Bangladesh border with the Union government so that there can be a complete check on further illegal migration from the neighbouring country.
The ABVP State secretary Simanta Das today said the problems of the State are being adequately highlighted on several national forums by the student body and it has taken several initiatives to promote overall development of youth.
�The current Union government is giving due importance to the issue of border sealing and we are hopeful of achieving the same very soon. In a recent Youth Parliament of the students� body held in New Delhi, the issue of border security and brain drain from the region due to the lack of adequate institutions of higher studies were raised prominently,� added Das.
The student body is also planning a national social survey of the condition of Indian villages.
�In Assam, too, we would conduct the survey in at least two villages in every block to create a database of the condition of villages of the State. The survey would include the condition of basic amenities, infrastructure, health and hygiene,� he added.
The survey would start in May next year.
On the occasion of completion of 50 years of its Students� Experience in Inter-State Living (SEIL) initiative promoting national integration, a programme would be organised in Guwahati, in which Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh is likely to take part.
The SEIL was started to strengthen the bonding among youth of different States of the country. �This time nearly 250 students from Assam would travel the entire country for a greater social and cultural assimilation,� he added.
Several workshops of students of medical, law, agriculture, Ayurvedic treatment etc., would be organised by ABVP in different parts of the country and the students from Assam would also take part.
