Panjab University (PU) on Saturday elected new syndicate members unanimously and unopposed from the Satya Pal Jain led group.
The polling for the syndicate members was not conducted as all members were the only ones who had filed their nominations for the posts from different faculties.
Meanwhile, senators from the Goyal group refrained from fielding their candidates in the syndicate election because of what sources claimed were their minimal chances of winning. The Goyal group had a majority in the previous senate and syndicate.
Of the 16 new members who were elected unopposed on Saturday, there were six women. Former Mayor and BJP councillor, Davesh Moudgil, is also among the selected syndicate members, the others being Professor Sukhbir Kaur, Department of Zoology; Dr Hemant Batra, Dr Harvansh Singh Judge, Institute of Dental Sciences and Hospital; Professor Devinder Singh, Dept of Law.
