The AIPPM Committee was moderated by Rudraksh Gupta and Vaibhav Jha, who not only instigated a fierce debate between the delegates on NRC, CAA and NPR but also discussed issues of national importance.
The UNGA Committee was moderated by Keerthivasan R and Janarthanan M. The delegates along with the moderators came up with strategies for national security. They gave speeches detailing their country’s position on the topic and offered possible solutions.
A Press Conference was also conducted by Speakers Club of both the committees where delegates from each committee were counter questioned about their opinions and their wisdom was put to test by the audience.
It was heartening to observe students from across India, with various ideas and opinions, coming to a consensus by majority. The participants’ response was overwhelming and as it was good to see that delegates from both the committees won awards for each category. It was a proud moment for Krea when a delegate from SIAS won the best delegation award among all the colleges.
