The Delhi High Court today castigated the Delhi University Students Union (DUSU) poll candidates for defacing the national capital, saying they owe an apology to the patient city, otherwise the offence would have landed them in jail.The high court asked the DUSU leaders and candidates to place an action plan within a week on how they propose to clean up the defacement in the DU and the manner in which the elections would be conducted in future.

“You owe an apology to the city. It is only because of a patient city that you are not yet sent to jail.“It is not a joke. This is violence against the city and its people. We shall have a clean Diwali. Come back in a week and show us a cleaned Delhi University,” a bench of Acting Chief Justice Gita Mittal and Justice C Hari Shankar observed.

The court had earlier sought the presence of 23 candidates who had contested the recently held DUSU polls and issued show cause notice to them to explain why action should not be taken against them for defacing public property.
