I think Student Unions are a must in the colleges and universities. These unions can play a very constructive role in upliftment of the colleges/universities and can serve as a link between the management and the student community for creating a congenial atmosphere in the campus. Unfortunately, it does not happen every time. Since many political parties are connected with these unions, there is lot of political interference which negates the very purpose for which these unions are constituted. Non-political nature of unions can be tried out and the elected leader can be educated about the demarcation of roles they need to play as union leaders.
