ABVP demanded reforms in the Lyngdoh Committee guidelines to avoid ‘impracticality’.
BJP’s student body feels that the committee’s recommendations in confining the election process to 10 days is “impractical” considering the number of voters and colleges which are affiliated to Delhi University Students Union (DUSU).
According to Saket Bahuguna,National Media Convener of ABVP, posters are a way to connect with students of all the 51 colleges spread across Delhi.
“DUSU is a large election and there cannot be a one-size-fits-all approach confining it to just 10 days,” he said.
They also mentioned that they have been asking DU election authorities to allocate separate democracy walls in colleges for putting up posters for election campaigning.
Bahuguna termed the Rs-5,000 cap on poll expenditure as “impractical” as it was too less to contest elections in a large scale, adding that campaigning on a single autorickshaw in all colleges would cost more than Rs 5,000.
