No students’ union polls this year: Higher Edu Minister
Bhubaneswar: Clearing air over rumours regarding conduct of the students’ union elections in colleges and universities across Odisha, the Higher Education department on Saturday made it crystal clear that there will be no students’ polls this year.
Higher Education Minister Ananta Das appealed to the students not to get influenced by misleading news being spread on social media and concentrate on studies.
