Chandigarh: Though the deadline for the campaigning had ended on Monday, as was ordered by the Dean of Students Welfare (DSW), some of the student organisations continued with their campaigning unofficially in the form of distributing manifestos to the hostel students and public meetings till late evening.
Supporters of various students’ organisations were moving in their cars around the campus with their printed stickers, pamphlets, party flags, banners and scarfs. While, major polling violation was also reported in the entire varsity campus, especially at University Institute of Engineering and Technology (UIET), University Institute of Pharmaceutical Sciences (UIPS) and Students Centre, where the student organisations held public meetings and distributed their manifestos and stickers, even in the classes.
Later in the evening, stickers, pamphlets and colourful paper strips were found to be scattered all over the campus.
Whereas DSW Navdeep Goyal said, “There was no such need to impose fines as there was no report or no complaint regarding this.”
