DU to send an official to TU to complete the inquiry.
The row over Delhi University Students’ Union (DUSU) President, Ankiv Baisoya’s certificates started when Nation Students’ Union of India (NSUI) alleged that his certificates were fake. To keep up with the deadline of 12 November, given by the Delhi High Court, Delhi University (DU) will send an official to Thiruvallar University (TU) to look into the matter.
NSUI had claimed that Baisoya’s mark sheet from TU from where he claims to have graduated in 2016 are bogus, and asked for an inquiry about the same.
According to Lyngdoh Committee recommendations, a re-election can only take place if the office of any major office bearer falls vacant within two months of the election results being announced.
TU, however, denies receiving any fee to verify Baisoya’s mark sheet. According to the TU registrar, the process of verification of certificates takes around 15 days. KTS Sarao, HoD Buddhist Studies had on Monday said that he had paid the fee required to obtain a genuineness certificate from TU, but never heard back from them.
TU controller of examinations B Senthil Kumar on Thursday denied having received any fee, despite sending a letter to DU, explaining to them the details.
“What TU is saying is incorrect. I have sent a copy of the payment receipt of NEFT transfer by registered post along with other documents. I have also sent the copies of the receipt and other documents by email twice, both to the registrar and the controller exams. In fact, money has already been received by them on October 25,” Sarao said.
Speaking to the DU Beat correspondent, National Secretary, NSUI, Saimon Farooqui said, “The DU administration, in compliance with ABVP is fooling the students in a similar manner that BJP is fooling the citizens of this country by influencing all government bodies. It is evident that the administration has been trying to slow down the process.” He added that TU has been giving out clarifications for a while now, but no action has been taken. Farooqui went on to say that the removal of Mr. Tuteja was done to pull the plug on the matter and now the administration has stooped so low that it had to lie about the payment of the fees. “Administration 100 percent mila hua hai, ye DU ka bacha bacha keh raha hai, hum nahi!” are the sentiments shared by him (The administration has been favouring ABVP, and all DU students are aware of it, it is not NSUI’s opinion).
