NSUI leader asks for fresh student union polls, DU refuses

After the post of president fell vacant within two months of the results being declared on September 13, NSUI’s Sunny Chillar sought the Delhi High Court’s direction to hold fresh Delhi University Students Union polls.

Earlier ABVP’s Ankiv Baisoya, was found to have submitted fake documents to get admission last month following which the post fell vacant after the president. The NSUI’s presidential candidate Sunny Chillar had earlier lost to Baisoya in the polls.

DU said added that no fresh elections can be held as the two-month period within which the polls could have been conducted had expired.

Fresh polls can only be held if a post falls vacant within two months of results being declared which was November 19, said the DU as per the Lyngdoh Committee guidelines.

The arguments will resume on December 6 as it remained inconclusive.
