New Delhi: In a major jolt for RSS affiliate Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP), Congress backed National Students Union of India (NSUI) has made a stunning comeback by winning three posts, including the crucial the post of President, in Delhi University Students' Union (DUSU) elections vote where counting of votes is still underway.
National Students Union of India (NSUI) has won the President post after four years. After the results announced today, ABVP's Amit Tanwar, will be replaced by NSUI's Rocky Tuseer as DUSU president.
Interestingly, when the initial list of presidential candidates was released, Rocky’s name was not there.
Reportedly, he was disqualified by the Delhi University’s Chief Election Officer in the wake of a disciplinary action taken against him in the past by Shivaji College in 2014. Rocky's candidature was restored by the Delhi High Court on September 8, just 4 days ahead of the elections.
ABVP managed to bag the Secreatary post. Last year, while ABVP had won the post of president, vice president and secretary, Congress’ students’ union NSUI was elected to the post of joint secretary.
As per the latest report, recounting is on for joint secretary post.
Congress leaders are congratulating their students wing on the victory in DUSU polls.
"After Rajasthan, Punjab, now NSUI's win in Delhi student polls proves that the youth have rejected Modiji's false promises of acche din," tweeted Congress spokesperson Randeep Surjewala.
In another tweet, Surjewal said, "Youth for Change' rejects falsehood of 'Acche Din' as jobs evaporate, opportunities diminish & freedom is curtailed".
ABVP had earlier in the week tested defeat in Jawaharlal Nehru University Students' Union (JNUSU) polls also where the united-Left alliance retained all four seats.
