Sulking over the loss of its candidates in Delhi University student union elections which they allege were not fair, BJP’s student wing ABVP today held another protest in the varsity campus and warned their next agitation may not be as peaceful.
Activists of the outfit staged a protest march in the campus today and submitted a memorandum to the Proctor’s office, demanding action against security guards responsible for using force on students, and an inquiry against Chief Election Commissioner C S Dubey’s role in the election. The student outfit has already moved the Delhi High Court with petitions charging that candidates were not allowed to see the electronic voting machines on the day of counting and that Lyngdoh committee recommendations were violated.
They said they had earlier sent a memorandum to the Vice Chancellor as well but have not received any response on it. “We demand that a high-level independent committee be constituted to go into our allegations (of bias and irregularities) or we will be forced to launch a more aggressive campaign,” said the memorandum. ABVP state secretary Rohit Chahal said the group will not take things lying down. “We have been peaceful so far, but our patience is running out.
The University has not responded to any of our concerns so far. If things go wrong, it is the University administration who will be responsible,” said Chahal. NSUI, which emerged victorious in this year’s elections meanwhile, accused ABVP of being hypocritical and irresponsible. “Even as their candidate Vishu Basoya has joined office as Joint secretary with much celebrations, they continue to engage in such activities and protests calling the elections rigged. It is high time they accept the mandate,” said NSUI spokesperson Amrish Pandey.
