Record 99.3% Vote in Agricultural College

Udaipur: Even as the student union elections missed the usual fanfare and hype that surrounds the poll every year, the elections on 31st August that took place at more than 70 polling booths for two universities and nine of their affiliated colleges saw a good turnout of students. At Maharana Pratap University of Agriculture and Technology (MPUAT) the voters’ turnout was recorded at 70.65%, while at Mohanlal Sukhadia University 60.72% students exercised their votes.

The university spokesperson, Subodh Sharma said that, “The highest turnout 99.30% was recorded at College of Agriculture at Bhilwara which is affiliated with the MPUAT-Udaipur, of the total 145 voters, 144 students cast their votes.” Voters’ turnout was 62.64% at College of Technology and Engineering, 75.9% at Fisheries College, 94% at College of Dairy and Food Science Technology and 67% at the College of Home Science.

The polls passed off peacefully barring a couple of incidents. At major faculties the polling began at 8am in a slack pace but later gained momentum. Due to high security measures, campuses wore a police cantonment like look with guards seen at every nook and corner.

Students were not allowed to enter the campuses without identity cards which led to a tension like situation at Commerce College. However, police dispersed the crowd forcibly to prevent any untoward incident. Voters were not allowed to carry their mobile phones inside the booth which irked many students who were seen arguing with the university officials over the strictness. Candidates at Commerce College arrived with two vehicles loaded with the publicity material which was seized by the cops and case was lodged against eight candidates.

At Sukahdia University vice presidential candidate Mahipal Singh Deora and joint secretarial candidate Shilpa Taunk were detained for distributing pamphlets outside the campus. Supporters who raised slogans against the police action were also held. While the policemen were vigilant over the boys activities, girls group at Meera Girls College created ruckus after a quarrel, they hurled abuses and even turned physical over trivial issues. Lady constables had tough time controlling the groups.
