Posters on DU walls: NGT summons chief election officer
NEW DELHI: Irked at the continued use of posters on the campus walls despite a ban, the National Green Tribunal on Friday directed the Delhi University's Chief Election Officer to appear before it.
A bench headed by NGT Chairperson Justice Swatanter Kumar passed the order after noting that nobody was present on behalf of the university.
The green panel issued notice to the election officer and warned that if he failed to appear before it on October 12, then it would impose a fine on him. It also directed the varsity to file a status report on the action taken against the violators.
The NGT was hearing a plea filed by Delhi University law student Nithin Chandran, through advocate Aditya Parolia, against indiscriminate wastage of paper during the students' body elections. The NGT had earlier warned DU students of rustication if they were found plastering posters on the campus walls.
