From high-profile rallies to the hot seats being contested by Congress’s Kanhaiya Kumar and BJP’s Bansuri Swaraj and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal’s return to the election campaign after getting interim bail in the alleged liquor scam case – the national capital is bustling with political activities ahead of voting on May 25.    

To decode the electoral mood of Delhi, Newslaundry sat with the students of Delhi University and Jawaharlal Nehru University on the JNU campus to talk about the issues that matter to the young minds.

The students discussed the controversies around the polls, Delhi politics, Kejriwal’s arrest, political parties’ attempts at saffronisation, women’s safety, the opposition under the Modi regime, unemployment, and the new education policy. 

Many students said that the ABVP and the BJP were “making strong efforts” to saffronise and politicise campuses, while some pointed out that education had become “more expensive”, and also alleged that the BJP wanted to “eliminate democracy and the opposition”.
