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

New Delhi: The face-off be­tween the JNU ad­min­is­tra­tion and the elec­tion com­mit­tee (EC) is con­tin­u­ing with the Griev­ance Re­dres­sal Com­mit­tee (GRC) ask­ing the EC mem­bers to ap­pear be­fore it on Mon­day, for al­legedly force­fully barg­ing into the room of dean of stu­dents with­out per­mis­sion.

The chair­per­son of GRC sent an­otice to the EC stat­ing, “This is with ref­er­ence to a se­cu­rity re­port dated Septem­ber 12 against you re­gard­ing force­fully barg­ing into the room of dean of stu­dents, with­out per­mis­sion, mis­be­hav­ing, threat­en­ing, in­sti­gat­ing stu­dents to as­sem­ble, in­dulging in gherao and in­ter­rupt­ing of­fice du­ties on Septem­ber 11.”

On Satur­day, the EC had re­sponded to the no­tice of the GRC’s 10-point al­le­ga­tions of vi­o­lat­ing Lyn­g­doh com­mit­tee norms dur­ing the re­cently con­cluded stu­dents’ union polls.

“In case you failed to ap­pear be­fore the GRC as per sched­ule, the in­quiry will be con­ducted ex parte and the de­ci­sion of GRC will be fi­nal,” stated the let­ter signed by Umesh Ashok Kadam.

Speak­ing against the no­tice, AISA said, “The EC mem­bers rightly pointed out that all in­quiries of GRC must be pub­licly held. When JNU EC mem­bers went to sub­mit their re­sponses to GRC, JNU se­cu­rity stopped, ha­rassed and in­tim­i­dated them.”

Mean­while, NSUI has called for a protest on Mon­day de­mand­ing the hear­ing of GRC be made public.
