Delhi University’s Student Union recommended the Election Commission of India to guide all educational institutions of our country to frame their examination schedule such that it doesn’t clash with the polling dates.
‚ÄúA large portion of these voters are studying in various educational institutions across the country. Semester examinations in these institutions are scheduled to begin in the last week of April and are expected to continue till the first week of June 2019.In view of these circumstances, it is essential to safeguard their constitutionally guaranteed right. We request you to kindly issue a directive in the form of an advisory to all educational institutions to frame their exam schedule. So that students can exercise their right,‚Äù stated DUSU president Shakti Singh in a letter to EC.
DUSU, on Tuesday, also encouraged students to exercise their right to vote in the coming Lok Sabha elections 2019. It also urged Union railway ministry to make arrangements for those students who are the permanent residents of a district different from which they study in.
