A new group of A-Class officers of Punjabi University here has decided to contest the coming elections of the A-Class Officers Association. The group is aiming for a change in the association leadership which, they claim, has been in control of a select number of people serving their own interests for the past many years.

Members of the new group, formed under the banner of “A-Class Officers Sanjha Manch”, said they had made a fresh start by deviating from the traditional parties and filed nominations for the elections.

The group, comprising Kamaljit Singh Jaggi, Brahmjot Singh, Digvir Singh Nagra, Rajbir Singh, Jaswinder Kaur, Rajiv Sood, Devki Ji, Ranjan Parmar, Meena Garg, Umrao Singh, Ashish Gupta and Daljit Singh, said, “For the past many years, only two traditional parties have been participating in the university elections. Both parties have been taking turns in installing their members as president of the association. But this time, the A-class officers want a change in the university, because both previously elected parties have been constantly focusing on special and personal affairs of certain people.

There are a total of 280 A-class officers on the campus. There are 11 posts of the association — president, vice-president, secretary, joint secretary, cashier and six executive members. The voting will take place on February 3 followed by the counting of votes the same day.
