Last Monday student CCL against the anomaly election and protested for the re-election. Students of Campus Law Center (CLC), Delhi University reported that Tier 1 election for Class Representative (CR) for ICC wasn’t conducted properly. The complaint that students didn’t get any notification regarding this election.
The Vice President of CLC’s student’s union Shivank Trivedi told that In September, CRs for ICC was to be selected from each class and these CRs are Different from CRs authorized with day-to-day activity. He said that students didn’t get any information regarding this and it only came into light when Law centre-1 posted about this matter on the website and issued a notification. Students tried to raise this issue in front of different authorities.
Students filed a grievance regarding this issue at the centre, at the office of the dean of the student’s welfare and Proctor’s office. Proctor’s office is the authority managing and supervising the ICC election.
Shivank Trivedi also added that only the CR’s got an email and were asked to assemble in the teacher’s common room on November 07. He added that the email didn’t specify the motive and purpose of this urgent meeting. General CRs were asked to gather and the ICC conducted the election in a very dishonest manner and also without any prior notice.
ICC election has 3 levels. Under the First level also known as Tier 1 CRs for ICC are elected from each class which is different from general CRs. Tier 2, the election is done among the selected CRs in the faculty and the elected person’s name is sent to The University.
Mr Trivedi said on behalf of the students the only election process of Tier 1 have been flouted and as a result, many students don’t even know about ICC. He also added that no solid action is taken yet and they are only being assured and the election will be conducted on 13 November. But because there’s no concrete action been taken regarding this matter so now the union and students have to make sure the election will be conducted as per the Law.
Any comments from Proctor’s office not have been made yet.
