PU Elections: Stu-C, Hostels Buzzing with Political Fervour


Chandigarh: After a gap of two years, the buzz in Stu-C and Panjab University campus hostels is back.  Student meetings in canteens and intense campaigning in every nook and corner of the campus has made the atmosphere vivacious.

A wave of student politics could be seen sweeping the whole campus to bring back the election vibe.

With days numbered before going to the polls, students’ political outfits have intensified their campaigning on campus, especially in the hostels. These groups are leaving no stone unturned to gather their supporters and spread their message to all departments.

Security beefed up:

Ahead of the student council polls to be held on October 18, the UT Police beefed up security arrangements at Panjab University (PU) and at other educational institutions affiliated to the PU.

At least 85 police personnel including women were deployed at the PU campus. The PU campus has been divided into four zones.

Barricades have been installed at the entry and exit points to slow down vehicles. There are three entry and exit gates at PU.
According to the officials, late-night checking drives will be carried out at the hostels to check the presence of outsiders. Possession of all kinds of blunt and sharp-edged weapons will be confiscated. Instructions have been issued to ensure students do not indulge in hooliganism.
