The final nomination list for the students’ union election in the city colleges was declared by respective college authorities on Saturday.

This year’s nomination process had its share of interesting twists with a few students claiming that they were being threatened and asked to withdraw their nominations while one of the colleges witnessed crude bombs being thrown inside the campus.

The officials of Maharshi College of Natural Law had called for presence of police all through the nomination process to avoid unrest on or outside the campus.

In the final list three students _ Amit Kumar Jena, Bharata Kumar Das and Sibabrata Nayak _ have been declared nominees for the president’s position in BJB Autonomous College. Rajiv Lochan Sahoo and Sandeep Mishra will contest for the vice- president’s post in the college. The post of general secretary did not receive any nomination and the post for Arts and Commerce representative has gone uncontested.

The Lyngdoh Committee guidelines like, attendance, age bar and clean academic record, are being strictly adhered to by the college authorities for selecting the candidates, sources said.

In Rama Devi Women’s (Autonomous) College, almost all the positions received two  nominations.

Pallabi Mohapatra and Rajashree Rajasmita Bhanja filed papers for president’s post. For the vice-president’s post, Mikina Rout and Dhaneswari Majhi qualified.   Dinesh Sahoo, Somnath Behera and Rajashree Mallick are contesting for the president’s post in Rajdhani College while Soumya Ranjan Pattnaik won the vice-president’s post uncontested.  The nomination process was peaceful in almost all the colleges with none of the principals reporting any unrest during the withdrawal process or declaration of the final list .
