The Constituent Assembly

Agenda : Discussing the Directive principles of the Constitution of India

The Constituent Assembly of India, consisting of indirectly elected representatives, was established to draft a constitution for India (including Pakistan and Bangladesh). The Assembly was not elected based on universal adult suffrage, and Muslims and Sikhs received special representation as minorities. The Muslim League boycotted the Assembly after failing to prevent its creation, but agreed to participate after the interim cabinet was reconstituted. Although a large part of the Constituent Assembly was drawn from the Congress Party in a one-party environment, the Congress Party included a wide diversity of opinions—from conservative industrialists to radical Marxists, to Hindu revivalists. The Assembly met for the first time in New Delhi on 9 December 1946, and its last session was  held on 24 January 1950. India’s constitution is something we are all proud of. The principles of democracy, sovereignty and secularism are enshrined in its preamble and are considered to be the founding beliefs of our nation. What if they were not? This committee gives you a chance to go back in history and take India down a different path. This committee takes place on 9th December 1946, before the decision to partition India was made, and has members from all backgrounds, from the Indian National congress to the All India Muslim League. This is your chance to rewrite the Indian subcontinent’ history and build upon new principles. Communism? Capitalism? Or maybe even dictatorship? It’s up to you.

Dhruthi Kannambadi

Viceroy of India, Lord Wavell

"A system cannot fail those it was not made for" 

A light hearted amicable person who will astound you with her ferocity and sarcasm when given a cause to defend. Poorly framed legislation is her driving force. Her ability to twist and turn your words will leave you hanging. With accolades in SJBHS,HMUN,SLCUMUN and several youth parliaments she holds her forte to be in Indian committee’s as they make up for the lack of drama in her life.

Pranav Srinivas

Observer,

Lord Louis Mountbatten

“He who would live must fight. He who doesn't wish to fight in this world, where permanent struggle is the law of life, has not the right to exist.”- Adolf Hitler

Having recently stepped into the waters of Munning, Pranav Srinivas has definitely made an impact in the Bangalore circuit. With a perfect placement record, including a Best Delegate award at his very first MUN and placements at prestigious conferences such as Harvard MUN, KMUN, COMUN, AMUN and GWHMUN he has definitely carved his niche as a delegate.


Having experienced it all, from BDs at Indian committees to fast paced crisis committees, he definitely knows how to get his way.

He may show up to committee in shorts, but will never fall short of winning that gavel. His eloquent speeches and adept lobbying skills along with his meticulous ability to write war directives makes him the most influential delegate in the room. 
 

Apart from winning every MUN he  attends, he is also an adamant debater, who doesn't care about winning as long as his opponent loses, a not so passionate pianist, a failure at competitive swimming, a master at destruction, an uncoordinated dancer, and a history nerd.
