Lucknow, Sep 12 (UNI) The National Students Union of India (NSUI), the student wing of Congress, today announced its decision to move the High Court against the Mayawati government's decision to ban students' union elections in Uttar Pradesh.

Talking to reporters here, NSUI state unit president Rahul Rai said he would be meeting other NSUI leaders in Allahabad tomorrow and file a writ in the Allahabad High Court against the decision.

''Top student union leaders from Delhi, Rajasthan and Punjab are reaching Lucknow on Monday to discuss a future strategy to deal with the situation...we believe in a peaceful protest so that the common man joins us,'' he said.

The NSUI would also organise a signature campaign between tomorrow and September 18 against the government's decision.

The ban was imposed by the state government last week to improve the education curriculum and environment in the state. However the ban would not be enforced in three central universities of Banaras Hindu University, Allahabad University and Aligarh Muslim University.

According to a government release here, the CM said that the step was taken to regularise the academic session of the universities and colleges. ''These elections create severe law and order problem besides the educational activities of the students get affected,'' she added. She further said that the students' unions elections also create disturbances in the campus areas.
