New Delhi, Oct 24 (IANS) The Supreme Court Friday imposed a conditional stay on the Nov 4 elections of the Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) Students Union after taking serious note of the violation of the Lyngdoh committee recommendations.The apex court said the stay would not apply if the students complied with the recommendations of the panel on the mode of elections to be adopted for the election.
The students had violated the Lyngdoh committee recommendations by contesting for an office bearers’ post more than once, while the panel had recommended that a student shall get only one chance to contest the poll.
A bench of Justices Arijit Pasayat and Mukundakam Sharma issued contempt notices to the JNU vice chancellor and the registrar asking why contempt proceedings should not be initiated against them for failing to comply with the apex court order Sep 22, 2006.
