Panjab University has again written to the governments of six states, where polling booths are to be set up, to seek their permission for conducting senate polls.
According to sources, the varsity again wrote to the state governments after they did not get any response from them. Mostly the polling booths of the registered graduate constituency are set up in different states.
The development comes after the chancellor’s office sought a draft schedule of the senate polls. According to the letter written by PU on January 18 to the chancellor’s office, the varsity said that the final election schedule will be proposed after the receipt of permission from the respective states.
The polls were earlier scheduled to start in August last year, but they were postponed twice by vice-chancellor Raj Kumar due to the pandemic. The last senate polls were held in 2016.
