JNU’s gen­der com­mit­tee to hold elec­tions

The Times of India (New Delhi edition) - - TIMES CITY -

New Delhi: The Jawa­har­lal Nehru Univer­sity’s gen­der sen­si­ti­sa­tion and re­dress body GSCASH has an­nounced elec­tions for its stu­dent posts. The last day of nom­i­na­tion is on Mon­day while the polling will take place on Fri­day.

The JNU reg­is­trar had, on Septem­ber 12, sent a no­tice to JNU teach­ers as­so­ci­a­tion, stu­dent as­so­ci­a­tion, of­fi­cers and staff as­so­ci­a­tion to keep any election for the GSCASH body on hold. The univer­sity ad­min­is­tra­tion plans to re­con­sti­tute the GSCASH into an In­ter­nal Com­plaints Com­mit­tee, which has elicited protests and crit­i­cism from teach­ers and stu­dents alike.

How­ever, a day af­ter the reg­is­trar’s no­tice, the GSCASH an­nounced elec­tions to its stu­dent rep­re­sen­ta­tive posts. “The GSCASH is a statute and fol­lows all guide­lines as per req­ui­site rules. It also has a le­gal stand­ing. The ad­min­is­tra­tion does not have the au­thor­ity to ob­struct these polls,” said JNUSU joint sec­re­tary Shub­han­shu Singh.
