A delegation of ABVP met HRD Minister Prakash Javadekar intervention into the cancellation of students’ union election at Ravenshaw University

Bhubaneswar:23/8/17: A delegation of ABVP on Tuesday met HRD Minister Prakash Javadekar seeking his intervention into the cancellation of students’ union election at Ravenshaw University in Cuttack.

They alleged that varsity authorities have curtailed the democratic rights of students by introducing students’ council poll instead of union elections. The student leaders urged the union minister to intervene in the matter to ensure their democratic rights.

“Instead of taking measures to fill up the vacant faculty posts, Ravenshaw authorities have prioritised the election matter more,” ABVP State secretary Abhilash Panda said, Preventing students from exercising their democratic rights cannot be tolerated, he added.
In response, the Union Minister assured of looking into the matter. “I will review the situation and will look into the ways how education system can be improved in terms of quality,” Javadekar said.
