During a meeting of the Jawaharlal Nehru University staff, Gourab Ghosh explained his motivations to become general secretary.
"The JNU campus is extremely homophobic and completely silent on the matter of LGBT issues. None of the elected representatives have ever bothered to find out what issues we face," Ghosh told in Hindustan Times.
"Despite being a progressive campus, the LGBT narrative has not been registered here. The Student Federation of India, however, is openly fielding me as their candidate. But even if I win, I won’t be able to work on this issue unless the JNU teachers’ association is willing to start a dialogue with me," he added.
Gosh would also like to improve the sexual and reproductive health programme for all the students by creating a "counselling cell".
We wish him to succeed.
