Confusion yet again!

By Ardra Balachandran

Twenty four hours haven't passed after the statement that counting will resume on September 11th and political chaos on campus has forced the Dean of Students' Welfare (DSW) to change the decision again. Official sources confirmed that counting has been deferred.

Apparently, a new complaint from students was referred to the Grievance Redressal Commitee (GRC) by the Vice Chancellor. Since the GRC needs 24 hours to look into this complaint, the counting that is supposed to happen on September 11th has been postponed until further decision. Meanwhile, the VC has also asked the GRC to submit a complete report on what has happened until now from the time of the General Body Meeting.

It is clear that without the support of all student organisations, counting cannot take place. At this point, that is the last thing that the DSW or the EC can claim.

Multiple contradicting statements from the authority and consistent conflict of ideas among political parties point towards one sure thing though – it is going to be long before University of Hyderabad will have Students' Union 2009-2010.


  1. the blame game between various political back up students organisation has gone beyond or imagination and understanding. it has reached to a limit where we (a political) kept in the state of confusion. we are not sure now if rigging did really happen or not. allegation and counter allegation justified by thier own versions of proof should be evaluated properly and publish for the general students of the campus. now. we do not see any difference between the indian political scence and our campus politics. we have no faith on them like we do not have on our politicains.. please make a report on this and clear the air of confusion.
