A petition has been filed in the Punjab and Haryana High Court on Monday challenging the Vice-Chancellor (VC) order deferring the Panjab University Senate election indefinitely.

The High Court has ordered the Punjab Government and the University to file replies on the petition.

According to the petition, the term of the Syndicate is going to end on December 31, in which case extension should be given to the Syndicate while the petition is under consideration.

During the hearing, Panjab University stated that there is no need to issue orders by the High Court, because in case of emergency, VC cannot take decision as per Panjab University calendar.

The University laid emphasis that the decision can be placed before the next meeting of the Syndicate. On this, the High Court has ordered the PU to file a reply on the next hearing on both the main petition and the application.

In the petition filed, the senators have submitted before the High Court that the term of the PU Senate is over and the PU has also released the schedule for holding the Senate elections in November last year, but some senators want to change the Senate elections schedule because of the coronavirus epidemic. The representation was also given to the Chandigarh administration including the Chancellor.
