DUSU 2017 : NSUI’s Presidential Candidate’s Nomination Rejected,Forced To Find A New Face


- Advertisment -

DU Elections 2017 : In the final list released by the Delhi University’s Chief Election Officer’s (CEO) office after withdrawals ,the National Students Union of India (NSUI) was in for a huge shock as their Presidential candidate was unable to make it to the list.

“We have been told it was some disciplinary action based on something minor that had happened during his time at Shivaji College. But he had never been suspended, and the same college had issued him a good moral conduct certificate too” Ruchi Gupta, the national in-charge of NSUI told Hindustan Times.

The NSUI allegedly has submitted a complaint to the University asking that Rocky Tuseed’s candidature must be accepted as he has fought elections before too.

“In fact this arbitrariness has happened with the same candidate when the Election Commission of DU cleared this candidate to contest his Dept election (also under DUSU) last year. Candidate was president of Dept of Buddhist Studies, DU. EC as an institution cannot apply differential standards year on year,” reads the letter.

Shivaji College’s Principal has denied that they had issued a good conduct certificate to him.

“There was an incident of indiscipline in 2014, and we had not allowed Rocky Tuseed to even enter the college premises after that. He was only allowed to appear for the exams, as we did not want to spoil his future. He did not come to the college the entire year,” Shashi Nijhawan, the principal of the college told Hindustan Times.

But according to a Times of India report,the disqualification has taken place because his admission to the Masters course at Department of Buddhist Studies wasn’t found in order.

The same report mentions that NSUI has convinced an independent candidate named Alka from Shaheed Bhagat Singh College (Evening) to fight election under the NSUI’s name.

A lot of candidates who have made it to the final list can still get disqualified after the NGT’s order which came yesterday and posters were still present in many corners of the campus.
