Among the major issues that dominated the election this year was the bid, which has been hanging fire for a long time, to regularize the daily wage employees working in PU. The demand has picked up pace after the decision of the Punjab Government to do the same in the state last year.
A total of 1,007 votes were polled out of 1,099 in the elections. The results will be announced Wednesday evening. For the post of President, the competition is between Ravinder Mohan Trikha and four-time president Deepak Kaushik, while for the post of senior vice-president Inder Mohan, Kulveer Singh and Rajiv Kumar are contesting.
