We believe that ANCSU is entrusted with the responsibility to nurture the youth to be assets of the society. So we hope that students will benefit through the activities we undertake,” said Vitso.
He also informed that all proceedings of the conference will be conducted in compliance with the standard operating procedures (SOPs) directed by the state government. The conference will conclude with the election of a new team of office bearers.
