TU Rector blames student unions for postponement of FSU election; Seven injured during a clash


KATHMANDU: A day after Tribhuvan University postponed the Free Students Union (FSU) polls for indefinite period, the blame-game has started among different student unions and also the Tribhuvan University for the postponement.

Rector of the University Prof. Gunnidhi Neupane informed that student wings of major political parties themselves have agreed to prorogue the FSU polls. He revealed the shocking fact, while talking with media persons during a program at Reporters Club here in the Capital.

He revealed that the student election scheduled for June 6 was put off fearing untoward incidents as the student wings of major political parties were sharply divided on the status of students admitted illegally.

The poll was dragged into controversy after some students of UCPN-M and UML were found spending millions of rupees to enroll hundreds of fake students to ensure their win.

Meanwhile addressing an interaction in the Capital, ANNFSU Chairman Madhav Dhungel accused the UCPN-Maoist-affiliated All Nepal National Independent Student Union-Revolutionary (ANNISU-R) of postponing the FSU polls. Dhungel warned that if the election is not conducted at the earliest then the FSU would collapse in the near future.

Himal Sharma Chairman of ANNISU-R said that the TU has postponed the student election citing enormous dispute between the student wings and warned that they would intensify the protest demanding resignation of the officer bearers of the TU if the institution does not hold the elections within November.

Nepal Students Union Chairman Ranjeet Karna warned that they would announce the protest programs demanding resignation of the officer bearers of the university along with the Chairman of the Interim Election Council (IEC) Khil Raj Regmi and the dean of the university.

In another incident at least seven students sustained injuries in the clash between two rival student wings –UCPN-Maoist-affiliated All Nepal National Independent Student Union-Revolutionary (ANNISU-R) and the CPN-Maoist aligned All Nepal National Free Student Union- Revolutionary (ANNFSU-R).

The injured included five members of ANNISU-R and two of the ANNFSU-R. Following the scuffle, the two students wings called scores of cadres of the respective parties’ youth wing leaving the situation in the campus area out of control.

Leaders of the two student wings are pointing fingers at each other for causing the scuffle. It is said that the scuffle took place over the issues of Chhakajam organised by the ANNISU-R in its bid to pile pressure to reschedule the date of Free Student Union polls. All the injured, some of whom sustained head injuries, are receiving medical treatment at Bheri Zonal Hospital and Teaching Hospital.
