Jagran Youth Parliament, an initiative of Dainik Jagran, is a simulation of the Indian Parliament. This serves as a learning forum for the young nationals of the country. It is the first step towards achievement and responsible citizenship and an opportunity to learn how the Parliament connects the local with the national.
It enables the youth to comprehend the functioning of democracy in real time inside the Parliament as it tries to protect every citizens rights and live up to the constitutional promises of freedom, equality and justice in a uniquely diverse country like India. It also provides a scope for the young minds to engage with the stakeholders to identify and address a city problem and create an impact.
Just like the real Parliament, JYP (Jagran Youth Parliament) is also comprised of three sessions – the Monsoon Session, the Winter Session and the Budget Session. The Monsoon and Winter Sessions have already been successfully conducted while the Budget Session is scheduled from February 19-22, 2018 at Law College Dehradun, Uttaranchal University. Students from five premier institutions of Dehradun will participate in the brainstorming Budget Session to formulate policies and scrutinize the Union Budget.
