New Delhi, Sep 9: The National Students' Union of India (NSUI) is planning to approach the Delhi High Court over the alleged cancellation of nomination of its presidential candidate in the JNU Students' Union elections. The Grievance Redressal Cell (GRC) of the university has "recommended" to the Election Committee (EC) that NSUI Presidential candidate Vikas Yadav's nomination be cancelled.
Yadav was intimated of the cancellation of his nomination by the JNU Dean Students' Welfare (DSW) office on Thursday evening, citing a proctorial inquiry previously initiated against him under which he was punished with a Rs 20,000 fine and hostel transfer.
"We have not been told the reason behind the cancellation our candidate's nomination. We were just sent an email by the Dean of Students Welfare (DSW) saying that the candidature of Vikas Yadav was cancelled," said Sunny Mehta, NSUI coordinator at JNU, was quoted as saying by Hindustan Times.
The annual election to the Jawaharlal Nehru University Students' Union (JNUSU), a traditional Left bastion, will be held on September 14. For the last two years, all four top posts in JNUSU have been held by a Left-alliance involving the Students Federation of India (SFI), All India Students Association (AISA) and Democratic Students Front (DSF).
