Following the legacy of such events, Rotaract Club of WCE Sangli stepped forward to organize an event with an objective of enhancing the political and financial literacy amongst the students.

COUNTRY CLOCK

TIME FOR A NEW DAWN OR A DARK AGE

The expedition of COUNTRY CLOCK, an event under International Service Avenue started from the selection of core committee. 11 fellow Rotaractors were selected for the core committee under the leadership of Rtr. Saurabh Kulkarni, International Service Director. For a constant 4 months, the event was being planned and designed. Finally, the day of execution commenced on 30th March, 2019.

Inaugural Lamp Lighting Ceremony was done by Chief Guest Mr. Abhijit Raut CEO at Z. P. Sangli, Prof. Dr. B. G. Patil – Dean Students’ Welfare, Prof. C. H. Wagh, Staff Advisor. The felicitation of the chief guest and our staff advisor was done by President Rtr. Shraddha Unhale and Secretary Rtr. Susmit Raut. IAS officer Mr. Abhijit Raut enlightened participants with the essence of Budget making and Policy making in India. Further, he briefed about Indian bureaucracy and politics.

The general objective of the Union Budget of India is to bring about a rapid and balanced economic growth of our country coupled with social justice and equality. Hence in the era of current turbulent economy, to suffice the need of having knowledge about what Union Budget and Public Policy Making stands for and their importance, Budget making session was emulated. Each team with two participants was assigned one particular ministry of Indian administration wherein one played the role of Cabinet minister and the other played the role of Secretary. Each ministry was issued with the budget circular by the Ministry of Finance enacted by the core committee on 26th March. In order to fulfill the appropriation demands for the next fiscal year, ministries were obliged to submit the Demand For Grants (DFGs) to the Finance ministry on 29th March.

On the first day, the Demand for Grants was discussed with the Ministry of Finance and the Annual Financial Statement of all the ministries were finalized for the upcoming fiscal year.

Then for the next five years, the ministries had to address the issues by collaborating with other ministries. There were five iterations for five fiscal years and gradually the collaboration of the ministries got expanded. On the basis of policies made by collaborating ministries the GDP growth rate, debt, fiscal deficit, inflation, etc. fluctuated. The main aim of the session was to maintain the balance between income and expenditure while solving the issues which were mainly concerned with socio-economy.

Before concluding the day 1, financial emergency was declared due to instability in the economy. Fresh elections were declared in the country and all the political parties were told to make a video for their party campaigning which paved a pathway for the political simulation to be held on the day 2.

On the second day, a team of four members was allotted with the different national political parties. To sustain the administration of the party, participants played the role of party President, the Strategist, the Spokesperson and the Envoy throughout the event. The prime time debates were held on the Country Clock News Channel. There were three debates on Anti-nationalism, Unemployment and Agrarian distress wherein the party’s spokesperson showed up in order to make their parties agenda public and strengthening the bid for winning the election.

After a lunch break, the parties had to give the poll promises to the people of the country. There were five prominent regions of the country. The party which promised the best agenda to address the local issues in a particular region got the highest number of seats in that region. But none of the party came in the majority.

So they had to search for the alliance to make a stable government. Parties negotiated on the basis of their stand in the coalition government which would have been formed. There were three iterations. Each iteration’s complexity got increased as the session proceeded and at the end of the third iteration, parties formed the stable coalition government with 11 parties as ruling and the rest as the opposition parties.

Before concluding the event, International Service Director Rtr. Saurabh Kulkarni announced the winner and the prices were distributed in the presence of Immediate Past President Rtr. Shivani Kondewar. For concluding remarks, Rtr. Susmit Raut gave a vote of thanks and officially concluded the event.

COUNTRY CLOCK being no exception to all the Megaevents till the date was a small pearl of the many pearls developed by the perseverance and eternal spirit of the Rotaractors.
