    1. Ron says:

      what ????? 2 candi from RP ??

    2. ace@heart says:

      the probability of success for RP is 2/3…highest ever till now!

    3. someguy says:

      Is there anything at all other than core team? And whats this? Nivesh seems to be following footsteps of matah…. He is defending a very very Lame CV

    4. Confused Dude says:

      Why is Interhalls part of Core team?

    5. ace@brain says:

      This guy is the bigger FRAUD !!

    6. rohit says:

      Ankit Singh is the INDEPENDENT candi – the only candi with balls…. rest two are regular ass lickers

    7. anonymous says:

      there’s nothing beyond core team in his credentials. what will he do for the general good!!!

    8. Sujoy says:

      Core Team persons shouldn’t be eligible for VP.They ae just concerned about KTJ.Look At what Matah’s done…

    9. Tanmay says:

      We dont want another matah.. one is enough.. and he uses his power to elect unfit persons like prabhat kumar for ugrep.. this is poltu.. we dont want this anymore.. no offence.

    10. arnab says:

      I don’t get….how an achievement at some St. mary’s academy(probably his primary school or middle school) comes under the domain of Inter hall activities….either it has been a misprint from the scholar’s avenue or a very very careless effort from the candidate to display his profile

    11. pirate says:

      candidate luks more from SN than from RP….
      Btw….which candi is backed by RP….i guess both :P

      and finally i find another matah in this profile…which we wud never prefer…
      placements sucked big time this year…so lets stop poltu in elections…

    12. kgp_dude says:

      @ Tanmay…u r absolutely right. People like Prabhat Kumar and Matah have done nothing for the good. And for everybody’s info they were form the “haloed core team Kshitij” that you are talking about here. So, we need a non biased guy to set our insti straight and Nivesh is not the guy..If selected,Nivesh will be the next Matah…So please think

    13. Anubhav says:

      kindly check your facts before accusing anyone to be unfit. Because if unfit means handling all the responsibilities of UG Rep and a few other posts while battling a life threatening disease is unfit then yes he is unfit.

    14. bhokaal says:

      I suggest people like tanmay should make an effort to come out of their rooms and observe who is doing what in the institute. Avoid making blind and baseless accusations sitting idly in your rooms. The actually ‘Aware’ junta would have laughed at tanmay’s post knowing about the spirit and commitment shown by Prabhat towards his duties.

    15. FacchaRocks says:

      Nivesh Pandey is such a haloo guy. He couldn’t even answer any question even about his KTJ when he came to MMM for publicity. He just wants to stand for VP to add it in his CV. He has done absolutely nothing apart from his core team. Another Matah! God save KGP…
      Since when was St. Mary’s Academy a hall in KGP?? Writing his school activities as inter-hall achievements!! What a fraud.

    16. maddy says:

      Nivesh said in his SOP that he brought a spons amount of 1.7lacs. He brought this amount for KTJ’09 and not for KTJ’10.(came to know frm a very relable source).He choose his words carefully that it wont be a prob for him.
      Ankit is the real candi who opposed all the odds and His SOP is good when compared with others inspite of the whole panel being against him!! His proposals r the ones which have most succes rate and realistic than others!!
      My vote definitely goes to him.

    17. silence says:

      ankit singh performed well in SOP bcaz d whole panel was against him… n other two had d backup …. ankit is better candi than both

    18. conscious voter says:

      This fellow is a total fake! The so called Ankit Singh also is the other side of this guy…. There was nu humility in either of them… No offence…

    19. god guy says:

      @anubhav.. is he actually ?? must have taken the wrong one in his mouth

    20. rohan says:

      9 panelists were helpless in front of ANKIT SINGH. He is really a right candidate for Vice President’s post….his 1st work after becoming vp will be replacement of current vp…..yoooooooo Ankit Singh……Singh is King……..:)

    21. rohan says:

      Nivesh is juice and He will be next Shubham Matah……so do you want to see two Matah in two consecutive years……i think no because it will be a tragedy… vote for “Ankit Singh”

    22. green_apple says:

      the most ****** propoal ever seen :
      * Ordering is entirely wrong, u put placement as no. 2 and ****** extra curricular as no.1 , dude, we all came here in this jungle to get a good placement.
      * Proposal no.5 is good, it should’ve been at 2-3, and btq who the hell wants sme stupid student welfar , thts totally not an issue.
      * Placement statistics proposal is ****. You mean to say u want to boost placement statistics, but not placements ? :P …..they can be boosted by some mean mode median =))

    23. A concerned Student says:


      PLZ SAVE THE INSTITUTE…..Don’t go by guts and sympathy… go by logic and sensibility ! .. Nivesh for VP … be rational and stop believing in super-heroes for godsake! … Please remember, its an election, deciding ONE YEAR, and not just giving you entertainment for ONE NIGHT.

      Please stop blaming the current post holders….they have really worked hard for the institute when u guys were sitting in your rooms and doing nothing.

    24. kgp says:

      All those abusing Nivesh n matah r from Nehru, Patel etc. its so obvious

    25. Sahastranshu Sinha says:

      Sit alone for 5 mins and close your eyes. Think about our institute. What would you prefer? 1 Night of entertainment and 1 year of suffering? Think hard. Go through the proposals once more. And I know, when you will open ur eyes…your choice will be Nivesh Pandey too !

    26. Sahastranshu Sinha says:

      And i need not hide my identity….thats not how we are !

    27. Fred says:

      this guy is NOT GONA HAPPEN…… its like he’s doing this just cause his hall wants him to…

      1 of the other guys for sure

    28. huhhaa says:

      library fines or all other types of fine can be paid through caution deposit and this is much more easier than online transaction or something.

    29. Navin says:

      KTJ memebers want their memeber as VP as it will benefit them specifically.. halls want their respective candidates to be nxt VP as per existing cheap and dirty hall/pact poltics.. break the chain to be free otherwise this dirty politics will prevail kgp for years and years.. let the REVOLUTION be from this year….

    30. Ankit Singh is our VP says:

      Iske proposals kitte chor team waalon ne mil ke banaye hain?????
      He is the second Matah and nothing else….

    31. 2ndyear says:

      @kgp Anyone speaking positive about Nivesh is from RP or the so called pact.

    32. rohan says:

      lets wait for result and hope for revolution……..:)
