In order to keep a vigil and detect violations of the code of conduct, the Panjab University authorities have installed CCTV cameras on the campus and hired videographers and photographers to record election campaign- related activity.
CCTV cameras have been installed at all main gates and the departments, including the University Institute of Engineering and Technology (UIET) and the University Institute of Legal Studies (UILS). Also, 11 CCTV cameras are keeping a watch on the activities inside and around the tents allotted to various parties.
Photographers and videographers have been hired to keep a watch on all election-related activity from morning till late night. The UT Police has also deployed one of their photographers on the campus to collect evidence of violations.
PU chief security officer Jatinder Grover said, “We have photographers and videographers who are not known to the students. They click pictures and videos with small cameras and sometimes with cellphones as well. We are receiving 300 to 350 clips and photographs daily. We analyse the pictures and clips and, where necessary, issue notices.”
He said articles like bats and hockey sticks were being seized at the gates every day. A student leader, however, said that the authorities should also take action against those who were found trying to bring such articles on the campus.

Some student organisations are seen pasting printed stickers on t-shirts and cellphones and distributing printed election booklets in violation of the code of conduct.
DSW Navdeep Goyal said, “Our election observers are taking note of all such things. After the elections get over, the expenditure incurred on printed material will be added to the parties’ expenses.”
