Election 2017

- Guru Raj Vaishnav , Journal Club



Editor's Note
With the 8th edition of SU elections all set to happen on the 14th of April, here’s an effort of the Journal Club of BITS Pilani, Hyderabad Campus to let you all know who you candidates are, to make you an informed voter and to show what’s all in store for you this election. This year is a special one since you are getting to exercise your voting right twice. The main motive behind this editorial is to get the BPHC junta know about the people who are going to represent you in the SU for the academic year 2017-2018.

Elections have always been hot topic on campus. Right from the malpractices of election campaign to the penultimate showdown, the “Soap Box”, the SU elections have always been crucial in defining the spirit of the campus. It unites us all for a common cause, i.e. to elect a representative for the next year.
The highlights of this special edition being the rant on big spots nominated by single contestants, a brief history of Soapbox and Interviews of all the contesting candidates. I hope you all enjoy the articles and get to know more about your candidates before Soapbox.

I would like to thank the Election Commission of BITS Pilani, Hyderabad Campus for being very supportive.

Disclaimer: All the articles of this Magazine have been scrutinized by the Election Commission. We are not biased towards any specific candidate(s).
