Kathmandu: The Free Students Union (FSU) of the Tribhuvan University (TU) has formed FSU Election Committee in all of its TU affiliated campuses to hold election.
The election is slated to take place on coming March 19 in the TU’s 62 auxiliary campuses and 1,040 affiliated campuses across the country.
According to Pashupati Adhikari, director of the TU Student Welfare and Sports Directorate, such committees have been formed in all auxiliary as well as affiliated ones.
The campus chief will be main patron of respective committees, informed Adhikari. The biannual FSU election has not taken place regularly since 2065 BS. The last one was in the Nepali month of Chaitra in 2073 BS.
