The Student Organisation of Panjab University (SOPU)-Haryana Student Association (HSA) on Wednesday continued stir against the Panjab University Student Union (PUSU) as its campus president Sukjit Singh Brar has failed to clear mess bills amounting to over Rs 70,000.
The members demanded that a case be registered against the Brar.
Meanwhile, retaliating leaders from PUSU-NSUI (National Students' Union of India) criticised SOPU-HSA for having outsiders on the campus. They also showed evidence where outsiders from the SOPU party are addressing students on the campus, appealing them to vote for their panel.
"Our campus president is clean. There are times when the bills get accumulated, but we are not running anywhere and he will clear all his bills. But what action has the university officials taken against SOPU for having outsiders campaigning for them," Sumit, a PUSU leader, said.
The PUSU leaders maintained that if their campus president was to be barred, then most of the leaders who have been banned to enter on the campus should be handed over to the police.
Mudslinging continued for the entire day where PUSU alleged proximity between Dean Student Welfare (DSW) and SOPU.
PUSU alleged that they had made several complaints to the DSW office but none had been looked into.
However, SOPU contradicted the claims and questioned the moral grounds on which PUSU was contesting as their campus president was guilty of pending bills.
The members from SOPU-HSA on Tuesday sat on a strike outside the V-C office against the pending mess bills of over Rs 70,000 of the PUSU campus president.
Later, the V-C assured them of strict action in the case. They also stressed that why the university authorities were delaying action in the case.
