The soapbox for the post of Student General Secretary (SGS) took place on 8th March, 2018. Sriram Kompella (fourth year Civil Engineering Dual Degree)
“Dheeresh’s tenure as the Students’ General Secretary saw some significant changes and the implementation of many new undertakings. The students’ facility centre near Sharavati hostel, an all inclusive student app for updates were some noteworthy achievements. However, a few of the promising points like the official transport partner of IIT-M and the Wi-Fi installation near Gurunath could not be completed owing to various reasons. Dheeresh managed an overall success ratio of 35.48% with respect to the points on his manifesto, while an additional 16.13% points have been set in motion. Six of the manifesto points could not be placed in the rightful section due to varied reasons pertaining to the facilities and authorities involved.”
“Aditya received generally positive reviews from the heads of organizations that are under the purview of the SGS. They opined that he gave them a lot of freedom to manage their respective organizations, while suggesting new initiatives. However, a common complaint among organizational Cores under him was that he did not represent them satisfactorily when their organizations ran into roadblocks with the administration.” Read more about the outgoing SGS’s tenure.
