JNUTA polls

NEW DELHI: After the much-hyped polls to the Jawaharlal Nehru University Students' Union (JNUSU), elections to the JNU Teachers' Association (JNUTA) that took place on Thursday were a much more quiet affair.

Unlike the aggressive tussle for power in the case of the students' union elections, JNUTA office-bearers were elected unopposed after the last date of withdrawal this Thursday. Chaman Lal from the School of Language, Literature and Culture Studies (SLLSC) has been elected president and is heading the JNUTA team.

The posts of vice-president have been secured by Charanjit Singh from SLLSC and Raman Prasad Sinha also from SLLSC. The post of secretary was won by M.M. Kunju School from the School of International Studies (SIS).
