JNU Students’ Union seeking modifications in the Lyngdoh Committee’s recommendations on student union elections, the Supreme Court has posted the matter for final hearing on October 27 to consider amendments and modifications.
Justice Markandey Katju and Justice A. K. Ganguly asked amicus curiae and Solicitor-General Gopal Subramaniam and counsel for various parties to give their suggestions so that the Court could examine modifications.
The Subramaniam said pursuant to the earlier directions of the Supreme Court the Lyngdoh Committee recommendations had been fully implemented by the universities and colleges and the mechanism was working very well. However, when Mr. Justice Ganguly referred to the application from the JNUSU for amendments, the S-G said certain amendments could be considered. The Bench then posted the matter for final hearing on October 27 and asked the parties to complete the pleadings by then.
