PG council Will take decision soon: VC


Bhubaneswar, september 29: Reiterating their demands to conduct the students union election, students of Utkal University on Monday staged dharna in front of the office of the PG Council after locking the office.

"The university authorities are diplomatically dealing with us. On one hand, they are not giving us the exact reason for cancellation of the election while on the other, they are telling to let us know about the decision after another round of discussion. We have a strong feeling that the authorities are hand in glove with the students who had won the election last year. On the recommendation of these students, they are probably trying to delay their announcement so that the election process would be delayed and if the election takes place, these students will have the advantage as there will be little time left for the new aspirants for campaigning," student leader Anirudh Sahu alleged.

vice chancellor Prof Ashok Das said considering the fact that the university has a huge campus, security and safety of the students are the prime concern of the university authorities.

"Those who have submitted memorandum to us are our students. So it is our duty to look into whatever complaints they have", he added.
