SILCHAR, Sept 22 - The All Cachar Karimganj Hailakandi Students� Association (ACKHA) has labelled allegations of favouritism against authorities of Assam University Silchar following the mysterious postponement of the elections to form the new body of Assam University Students Union (AUSU). According to the members of the students� association, Vice- Chancellor Prof Dilip Chandra Nath, and the concerned teachers in charge for conducting the election are favouring a particular student organisation (hinting at the ABVP) by postponing the elections from its scheduled date of September 20 to after the Durga Puja holidays.
Members of the students� body termed this attitude of the varsity to be an insult to the democratic model of the university system. �The university authorities have taken sides in relegating the elections to mid-October. We strongly condemn this step,� said Rupam Nandi Purkayastha, chief advisor of the student body.
