NSUI makes comeback in DUSU polls, bags posts of president and VP

New Delhi, Sept. 13 (PTI): Congress-backed National Students Union of India on Wednesday made a comeback in elections to the Delhi University Students Union, bagging two of the four crucial posts including that of the president's.

The Akhil Bhartiya Vidyarthi Parishad, a Bharatiya Janata Party affiliate for which the DUSU is a stronghold, bagged two seats, that of joint secretary and secretary.

The NSUI's Rocky Tusheed won the president's post by a margin of 1,590 votes, while the party's Kunal Sehrawat defeated the ABVP’s Parth Rana by 175 votes to win the vice-president’s post.

ABVP's Mahamedha Nagar defeated NSUI's Minakshi Meena by 2,624 votes to win the post of secretary while party's joint secretary candidate Uma Shankar defeated NSUI's Avinash Yadav 342 votes.

A total of 43 per cent voter turnout was recorded in the DUSU elections held on Tuesday.

Last year, the ABVP had bagged three posts while the NSUI won the post of joint secretary.
