Cuttack: Resentment is brewing among students as the authorities of Ravenshaw University are now contemplating to keep the students’ union election in abeyance at the premier educational institute of Odisha.

Instead of holding direct elections for students union, the authorities are looking for an ‘alternative model’ to have representation of students.

Such decision has not gone down well with students’ community as students’ union election is the first step towards fulfilling their political ambition.

“We feel our rights have been taken away as there are lot of students who have entered politics after contesting for students’ union election at several colleges including Ravenshaw University,” said Pratik Das, an-ex student of Ravenshaw University.

As per a notification issued on July 18, the Ravenshaw University officials have formed a committee to recommend an alternate model of students’ representation to be adopted in the year 2017-18.

Sources said, the authorities claim to have taken such decision to maintain peace and tranquillity on campus which is a pre-requisite to impart quality education.
