NSUI demands fresh election after DUSU prez quits over fake marksheet
New Delhi: The National Students' Union of India (NSUI) on Friday demanded that the Delhi University Vice-Chancellor should order fresh elections to the Students' Union body. The demand came a day after the incumbent Delhi University Students' Union (DUSU) President Ankiv Baisoya was forced to step down from the post till the completion of an inquiry against him for allegedly submitting fake education certificates to get admission to the DU.
In his letter to Vice Chancellor Yogesh Tyagi, DUSU Secretary Akash Choudhary argued that the Lyngdoh guidelines which stipulate raising the next ranked office bearer to the vacated post are not valid in this case since the guidelines are only an advisory and not binding on the university. Chaudhary, the sole office bearer in the union from NSUI, said that the DUSU Constitution has no mention of the Lyngdoh guidelines and called for fresh elections. Baisoya resigned on Thursday after his membership was suspended by the Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad, the student wing of the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh.
The NSUI also demanded action against Baisoya as well as K.T.S. Sarao, the head of the Buddhist Department where Baisoya took admission, for admitting him on the basis of fake documents.
However, sources informed that the Head of the Department, Buddhist Studies, has informed the police about Baisoya's fake marksheet. Additional DCP, Harendra Singh informed, "If any communication is made by any authourity. We may take legal action."
