With the date of RUSU elections drawing near, the vice-chancellor of University of Rajasthan, Dev Swarup, convened a meeting of all the heads of departments and constituent colleges on Thursday.
Earlier, the vice-chancellor became upset when he saw students campaigning with their supporters in droves against norms. “The V-C stepped out of his vehicle and directed the cops at the gates to get the students out of the campus,” a PG student said. Only the university’s main gate will remain open from Friday and all other entry gates of the university will be closed. At the meeting, it was decided that the process of making the ID cards for the students would continue on Friday as well.
The students who still haven’t got the ID cards can get theirs on Friday to be able to cast their votes in the elections.
The security has also been tightened and on the election day, no vehicle will be allowed to enter the varsity.
Instructions regarding this were also given in the Thursday’s meeting by the vice-chancellor to all the university officials.
However, for the convenience of voters, buses will be parked near the main gate of RU to take students from the gate to the polling booths.
The V-C asked all the officials to conduct the elections in such a way that the RU becomes a ‘model varsity’ for all other universities in the state and country.
