“Initiatives such as the Model Parliament helped me to understand how the Parliament actually functions. I was made the Minister of Information and Broadcasting and had to read up on the various bills, answer questions by fellow members of parliament, present the views of the government on the bills and also gather the support of the Members on the opposition benches for the bill. This was a very unique and exhilarating experience.
But inarguably the best part of the course was when the students of IIDL got to work with the Assam BJP team in the 2021 Assam Elections. We also got to meet and interact with the incumbent CM and the future CM of Assam.”
