During the 2005-2006 Students’ Union Election at University of Hyderabad, Dalit Students’ Union Member Mr Harinadh Siluveru was fielded as a candidate for the post of Sports Secretary and he was successful in election. In fact, University Discussion Forum (UDF), Dr B R Ambedkar Students’ Association (ASA) & Dalit Students’ Union (DSU) contested together as a panel, following their annual tradition, during this election too.

This was the poster released by the Dalit Students’ Union (DSU) on the Campus expressing gratitude after election of Mr Harinadh Siluveru as Sports Secretary for 2005-2006 to represent the Students’ Union.

This seems to be the agenda presented by Mr Harinadh Siluveru when contested as Cultural Secretary of Students’ Union for 2006-2007. Able to trace out from DSU archives.

This picture indicates; how DSU made attempts to expect possible questions to Mr Harinadh Siluveru, when he was about to face Open Dias at DST auditorium as part of 2006-2007 Students’ Union election, in which he was fielded to contest as Cultural Secretary.  One can also observe how Beef became a major problem to DSU, as it created rucks by organizing Beef Festival as part of 2005-2006 Sukoon for the first time!!

Mr Harindah Siluveru hails from Warangle district of Andhra Pradesh (Telangana region). One’s observation towards him reveals how enthusiastic he is politically!! His political activeness can be observed from various dimensions – like he had been politically successful on the Campus in various forms. He was able to represent in the Students’ Union twice as Sports Secretary during 2005-2006 and immediately next year he was successful in re-representing the Students’ Union as Cultural Secretary (i.e. 2006-2007). He was the main person behind the establishment of Telangana Students’ Association (TSA) too on the Campus for the first time. And, in due course of time this TSA emerged as a successful platform. He served as President of the Dalit Students’ Union (DSU) for the academic year 2008-2009. In-fact, I humbly recollect my memory in this regard; when he was the President of DSU, I served as General Secretary!! While he was serving as DSU President got married in 2009. He seemed to have faced many troubles with the peak of Telangana agitation of 2009-2010, especially from the police forces, and also seemed to have faced trouble at this juncture to manage both the married life and activism for Telangana.
