Several students of the university closed gates of the university campus and sat on protest on Thursday asking the AMU administration to declare the election dates. As a matter of fact, AMU administration has been denying the students’ demand to hold elections in early days of November. Following the protest, the varsity administration made it very clear that union elections will not be held along with municipal elections happening in the state.
