DUSU elections 2019: The election of the central university will be held on September 12. The voting will take place in two sessions - the morning session will be held from 8:30 am to 1 om while the evening session will be held from 3 pm to 7:30 pm.
This year, the varsity has effected a 10 per cent increase in seats for the EWS category under postgraduate and undergraduate courses. The number of seats for undergraduate courses has increased to 62,000. Separate cut-offs for the EWS category have also been released.
The Delhi High Court had on Tuesday rejected National Students’ Union of India (NSUI) leader Sunny Chillar’s petition for fresh elections, after Baisoya’s seat was vacated following his undergraduate degree being found fake.
Soon after Ankiv Baisoya was elected as DUSU President, the NSUI claimed his admission in DU’s Buddhist Studies Department was not valid as he submitted fake marksheet of graduation from Thiruvalluvar University.
Baisoya was elected DUSU president last month. He secured admission in MA Buddhist Studies in July this year and submitted Bachelor of Arts marksheets from Thiruvalluvar University as his qualifying certificates.
After alleging that DUSU President, ABVP’s Ankiv Basoya, had produced a fake degree from the Thiruvalluvar University, National Students’ Union of India hurriedly planned a protest. The protest, however, ended up attracting only 5-6 people.
