Candidates going all out to woo voters

Bhubaneswar: After nomination papers filed by candidates on Thursday, contesting students in various colleges across the state are going all out to attract voters by meeting them personally and offering them small gift items, flowers and pushing cards.

Notably, the final list of eligible candidates for this year’s students’ union polls in colleges and universities across Odisha were declared on Tuesday.

However, elections at some colleges across the State were called off following pre-poll violence.

It may be noted here that, the “Why I stand for” meeting will be held on October 13. Polling would begin at 10 AM on October 14 while the counting of votes would begin at 2 PM. The election results will be declared in the late afternoon.

The swearing-in program will be held on October 15.
