In a bid to make last impact on their voters contestants adopted variable line of approach. A contestant was observed bowing down to voters outside Rajasthan University, while girls were seen sporting turbans at Maharani College. Doing so they claimed to represent their humility and pride, while nearly a dozen students got detained by Bajaj Nagar police for distributing pamphlets.
Despite the persistent efforts to lure voters till the last moments, all contestants collectively failed to attract voters. Almost half of the students didn’t turn up to vote for the students government. Among constituent colleges, the Maharani college had maximum number of voters registered at 43.69 per cent votes.
- 11,516 out of 22,677 students cast their vote. The highest 75.54 percent voting was recorded in Law College (First) while the lowest 43.69 percent voting took place in Maharani’s College. Following the completion of voting, the ballot boxes are kept under security at DSW office on University campus.
- This time, drone was used to monitor student union elections in the RU. During the voting, the Jaipur police flew drone at the Rajasthan University campus and monitored the poling. Apart from this, eight companies of STF and RAC were deployed. Students were not allowed to gather outside the four constituent colleges and university campuse. Traffic on JLN Marg and Tonk Road was not stopped during the student union elections.
- E-rickshaw and Tata Magic were arranged for students for transportation in the RU campus. The monitoring of transport vehicles was not arranged by the University due to which the drivers had parked the vehicles at the main gate. One e-rickshaw was non-functional, whereas the driver of an e-rickshaw took the keys with him. After this, the students had to go on foot to reach the polling booths.
- This time, for the students’ elections, the Rajasthan University issued barcode-based identity cards to the students to prevent bogus voting. Students were admitted in the polling station after scanning the barcode of the I-cards on mobile. Students had to face problems due to Net Connectivity and Server. Some students’ i-cards were scanned three-four times.
- An elderly student also voted in the RUSU election. 69-year-old student of LLB, Arun Roy Kaushik voted in the student wing election. Kaushik had enrollment in the University of Rajasthan in the year 1970. He took admission in the first year LLB in Law College in 1974. But he could not complete the LLB degree.
