After the long discussed FYUP chapter, the University of Delhi now is gearing up for the Delhi University Students’ Union (DUSU) elections of 2014-15. With tentatively a month to go for the election period, the Vice Chancellor, Dinesh Singh appointed officials for monitoring and facilitating the conduct of these elections of office bearers and members for the Central Council of DUSU. DUSU is the representative body of the students from most colleges and faculties.

DS Rawat of Department of Chemistry has taken over as the Chief Election Officer. Rawat was also responsible for the duties of Chief Returning Officer for the elections of 2013-14. “Now that the notification has come we will sit for a meeting and develop a plan of action on how to maintain discipline and order during the election period”, he told DU Beat.

Chandar Shekhar of Department of Persian has now been appointed as the Chief Returning Officer for this year and Satish Kumar, OSD Examinations will serve as the Returning Officer.

Apart from DUSU each college has its independent council and elections are held for the same each year. For that purpose, VC has also appointed principals of colleges and head of institutions to regulate elections in their respective institutions.

The elections which are expected to be conducted in mid-September will witness each student casting his or her vote independently for their choice of candidate. DUSU elections have candidates contesting from Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP), National Students’ Union of India (NSUI) and a few candidates from the independent parties.

Not equipped well with mind of a business maestro, he just likes to sit back with a cup of tea trying to balance journalism and poetry. One can generally find him chit-chatting with people (strangers and known, both) or struggling in the overcrowded city of Delhi looking for a seat to watch a play or some Bollywood film, at a cheap price ofcourse. (He hates people who hate Bollywood). An anchor, compère and interviewer, he also enjoys event management and cooking. Known well for his sense of humour, Iresh aspires to integrate his three interests of Movies, Marketing and Writing to make something out of his unproductive life as his elder generation terms it to be.
