Former student in court to lift ban on Jamia students' union poll

Tuesday December 20, 2011 08:11:54 PM, IANS

New Delhi: A former student of Jamia Millia Islamia Tuesday moved the Delhi High Court seeking quashing of a 2006 decision of the central university to ban elections to the students union.

Petitioner Ikrar Khan alleged that it was unreasonable on the part of the university to ban the election from March 2006.

He said that the authorities had continued to collect a union fee of Rs.50 per student despite there being no elections in the last few years.

"It is in violation of the constitution," he said.

He said the poll had not been held since March 31, 2006 despite several representations and requests by students.

Sitab Ali Chaudhary, counsel for the petitioner, said: "The vice chancellor gave an assurance but neither the election was conducted nor any positive sign has been shown."

Claiming that the university was charging the students' union fee without any intention of holding the election, Khan said: "Jamia has 13,810 students and the university has been charging Rs.50 per student as union fee."

The university March 2006 dissolved the students' union without giving any reason, the petition said.

"Then union president Sams Parvez was beaten up mercilessly by then proctor and his security men and other anti-social elements when he was peacefully asking the reasons to dissolve the duly elected students' union," alleged the petitioner.
