RTM Nagpur University has rescheduled polling for Graduates’ Constituency of Senate elections for December for December 17. The notification has been issued by the University on Thursday.
The elections were scheduled to be held on December 11, the day on which Prime Minister Narendra Modi is visiting Nagpur for inaugurating Samruddhi Mahamarg and the second phase of Mahametro.
The University authorities appear to have not even considered other events before selecting the dates. The Gram Panchayat elections are scheduled on December 18 and most of the teachers will be on election duty. Secondly the decision on the petition related to the University elections is on the agenda of the High Court on December14.
The University may face ignominy of again changing the dates of polling.
