JNU elec­tion panel claims no norms vi­o­lated

The Times of India (New Delhi edition) - - Times City - TIMES NEWS NET­WORK

New Delhi: After the Griev­ance Re­dres­sal Cell (GRC) of Jawa­har­lal Nehru Univer­sity sent a no­tice to the elec­tion com­mit­tee (JNUEC) men­tion­ing 10 al­leged vi­o­la­tions in the re­cently-con­cluded stu­dents’ union polls, the panel has re­sponded say­ing the elec­tions were con­ducted within the JNUSU con­sti­tu­tion and the Lyn­g­doh com­mit­tee re­port rules and that the GRC’s points were in­valid.

On Septem­ber 9, the GRC had sent a no­tice to JNUEC re­lated to the polls held on Septem­ber 6. One such al­le­ga­tion was that JNUEC con­ducted the polls in 10 days, which is in vi­o­la­tion of a Lyn­g­doh com­mit­tee clause.

JNUEC said, “The sched­ule fol­lowed by the elec­tion com­mit­tee co­in­cided with the one pro­vided by your of­fice on the day of no­ti­fi­ca­tion of the com­mit­tee, which com­pleted the process within 10 work­ing days.”

GRC had also al­leged that JNUEC had de­clared the fi­nal list of can­di­dates with­out ver­i­fi­ca­tion of records from the chief of proc­tor’s of­fice and with­out at­ten­dance records. JNUEC re­sponded that on Au­gust 29, be­fore the list of fi­nal can­di­dates was pub­lished, a pub­lic no­tice was re­leased seeking at­ten­dance cer­tifi­cates for all can­di­dates, which was duly com­piled and sub­mit­ted to the GRC of­fice on Septem­ber 3.

De­spite sev­eral at­tempts, the Griev­ance Re­dres­sal Cell chair­per­son Umesh Kadam didn’t re­spond to TOI’s queries.
