AIPP or the All India Political Party Meet is a non-technical but powerful committee. It is a meeting between all the political parties of the nation. Typically called before the session of the Parliament or before the introduction of a bill, this committee aims to arrive at a consensus before the sessions begin.
It is a supplementary body to the Parliament without any legislative provisions. The purpose of the meetings was initially to be a forum for unbounded political debate which may not be allowed in Parliament due to time constraints but these bodies now aid in providing a better insight into national issues. They help provide a diverse viewpoint before the actual legislative process.
It is my privilege to welcome you to All India Political Parties Meet at VIBGYOR virtual Model United Nations (Vv-MUN), which aims to be better and grander than any of the previous ones.
AIPPM is perhaps the only conference in India where all the big guns of Indian Politics come together to solve various issues. The unique quality of the AIPPM is that it does not take into consideration the portfolios of any politician. The committee also does not involve vexing procedures followed in the two houses of the Indian Parliament. Instead it is a platform for various political perspectives and personalities to come together and make decisions on issues of monumental national importance.
We expect the delegates to fully aware of the agenda at hand and be thorough with their research. Delegates ought to be proactive and be adept to adapt to the demands of the committee. I personally look forward to the viewpoint put forward by the first time MUNners. But above all, our purpose here at VIBGYOR virtual MUN is to help MUNners become better at their craft.
We the executive board of AIPPM hope to provide the delegates a fruitful session in the most dynamic committee of Vv-MUN.
“Our house is still on fire, your inaction is the flames by the hour.”
As your chair during this incredible journey you are about to embark on, it is my true honour and pleasure to welcome you to the first edition of VIBGYOR virtual Model United Nations (Vv-MUN).
A little bit about myself, I am a seventeen year-old student pursuing the IB diploma programme at Singapore International School. I yet remember how nervous I was when I went for my first Model UN, and it fortunately happened to be VHMUN. After 72 hours of intense debate with 20 well dressed and confident delegates, I called my mother and told her: “Mom, this is what I want to do for the rest of my life.” VHMUN has given me a new journey to tread on, and I hope it does the same for you.
Being part of more than 20 Model UNs and numerous debates, I believe in the saying “The principle of give and take is the principle of diplomacy – give one and take ten.”
An absolute fan of organised disruption, I believe that it creates both: inconvenience and opportunities. It is now in your hands, to decide which turn the European Union will take.
Come prepared with your arsenal of research, wrapped in diplomacy. Lastly, if you have any questions concerning committee or the Vv-MUN experience, please feel free to reach out to me.
I am pursuing engineering and economics at an undergraduate level but I promise not to bore you with my fascinations unless you disrupt committee. I am also a theatre enthusiast. Thus, our committee sessions maybe a little dramatic, but no promises. Two things I am not very great at but I do it regardless are singing and cracking jokes; the latter you can guess by reading this write-up.
If you were to ask me what I miss the most, among a few other things, it would be the culture of MUNing and debating that has supported my growth throughout the past six years.
But for the delegates who would like to get a clearer picture of who I really am, I would like to say, I’m just like you. I am someone who not just enjoys these deliberations about the burning issues in the world, but also enjoys the small moments in life. I hope I do a good job moderating, guiding and supporting you through the four days of the conference.
Welcome to another year of the prestigious Vibgyor Model United Nations. The virtual edition is going to be more challenging than any of the previous ones and is going to set a new precedent for MUNs in the city. We promise a fun, learning experience for all of you but a little more for the delegates of AIPPM.
With every passing year, AIPPM becomes more and more relevant due to the dynamic political condition of India and this year it is more so due to the dire circumstances brought about by the Pandemic that we all are facing. Debates in this committee are usually intense due to the agendas being so close to heart. The committee is fast paced with multiple motions being raised and passed very quickly. It is different from other committees as delegates will now have to adapt an individual’s persona and characteristics that allows a delegate to go deeper with their research. Also, it allows for more teamwork as delegates of an alliance will have to work together.
We expect delegates to be thorough with their research along with being proactive in the committee. They will have to ask questions and always be on their feet to adapt to the demand of the committee. More than anything we expect delegates to make an effort to participate in the committee. Once we see an incentive, we would make sure that they get support and end up learning something while having a great time.
We promise a great experience for our delegates while they enjoy themselves by dwelling into the world of Indian politics and coming out better informed about their country.
