Panjab University Campus on a High with Election Fever Catching Up


Chandigarh: With two years without elections, the wait for the announcement of Panjab University campus students council is finally over. The UT Administration has given its nod to conduct elections to Panjab University Campus Students’ Council (PUCSC) and its affiliate colleges for 2022-23 on October 18.

A lot of fun-filled and competitive election fervour will be visible on the campus with over 10 political groups in the fray.

As a precautionary measure, the UT Administration has ordered restriction on entry of outsiders inside the PU campus during the elections. “The university will be held responsible for any kind of violence, created by outsiders, who are not bona fide students of the university,” read an order.

The UT administration has asked the authorities to get the non-functional CCTV cameras repaired and installed at various gates. The police has already planned surprise checks in hostels and a march past in the campus.

Student leaders from various political forums from Punjab, Haryana and Chandigarh are expected to reach here to address students and garner support for their respective candidates.

While the number of voters in the 2019 elections was around 16,000, the university is tallying the numbers. This exercise is expected to be completed by October 14.
