FSU polls unlikely for now

KATHMANDU: Officer-bearers of the Tribhuvan University (TU) have ruled out the chances of Free Student’s Union (FSU) elections for now though some student leaders have pledged to take initiatives to hold the election by mid-June.

Gundanidhi Neupane, Rector at the TU, said that the FSU election scheduled for June 6 would not have postponed if there were chances of election by mid-June.

He also said that the election date was postponed based on suggestions of the student leaders after the election environment foiled due to dispute among the students unions.

Leader of Nepal Student’s Union Lekhnath Pokhrel claimed that other students unions were to blame for FSU polls postponement.

Similarly, chairperson of CPN-Maoist affiliated student union Sharad Rasaili said there were no chances of FSU election before mid-November.
