Riteish and Genelia unveiled a dedicated web portal for the purpose of preparing a "Student Manifesto", said National Students Union of India (NSUI) president Rohit Chaudhary.

NSUI activists shall visit educational institutions across the country to collect suggestions from students. "Students must decide the fate of this country. Policy makers do not know all the problems faced by students and it is high time they should participate in policy making," Riteish said.

Genelia urged students to come out and take part in preparing the manifesto. "As students, all of us have had problems, and now there is an opportunity to bring them to the fore for solutions,” she said.

Political leaders and analysts have attributed the outcome of the assembly elections to the voting power of the youth, students and first time voters who want a change.

"As (Congress Vice-President) Rahul Gandhi has promised, policy making won't be limited to ten people in a room. Every student is invited to give ideas to reform the education system," Chaudhary said.

Suggestions from students will be collected by December 22 and presented to the party leadership for its consideration and necessary action, said Maharashtra NSUI chief Suraj Singh Thakur.
