NEW DELHI – As Narendra Modi has embarked on his third term as prime minister, citizens across the nation are voicing their expectations and aspirations for the new government. Among those eagerly awaiting the unfolding of the Modi administration’s agenda are students from Jamia Millia Islamia, a central university known for its academic excellence and diverse student body.

In exclusive conversations with Clarion India, students from various departments shared their perspectives on what they hope to see from the upcoming government, emphasising the need for enhanced facilities, increased job opportunities, national security measures, and social inclusivity.

Ahmad Arsalan, pursuing an LLM, underscored the importance of revamping the country’s education system. “The government should focus on improving the university system so that the country’s students can perform better in higher education and represent India on international platforms,” Arsalan from Khagadia in Bihar, asserted.

He emphasised the significance of aligning educational offerings with global standards to foster competitiveness.

Dawood Ahmed, hailing from Bhopal in Madhya Pradesh, and a member of Jamia Millia Islamia’s engineering department, called for concrete actions to strengthen national security amidst growing threats. Expressing discontent with certain government schemes, he stressed the need for robust military recruitment and stern measures to tackle issues such as question paper leaks, which adversely affect the youth.

Yasmeen Naz, another student from the engineering department, emphasised the importance of inclusion and diversity in governance. She urged for greater representation of Muslims in both the BJP and the government to alleviate the community’s sense of marginalisation. Naz also advocated for a shift towards promoting manufacturing start-ups to address unemployment and enhance job creation.

Akhilesh, a PhD scholar from Bihar, highlighted the plight of farmers and the need for stringent enforcement of laws to safeguard their interests. He called for the effective implementation of existing schemes such as the Kisan Crop Insurance Yojana to ensure equitable distribution of benefits among farmers. Akhilesh also emphasised the imperative of addressing the challenges faced by Dalits and holding perpetrators of discrimination accountable.

Faizan Ahmed, a sociology scholar from Azamgarh, emphasised the significance of balancing public sector development with privatisation. He advocated for expedited delivery of welfare schemes to bolster public confidence in the government and foster the inclusion of marginalised communities.

The voices of Jamia Millia Islamia students reflect a collective call for a government that prioritises education, employment, security, and social cohesion.

As the new government has taken over, expectations are high, and the hopes for a brighter future resonate strongly among the youth of India.
