The results of the Delhi University Students’ Union elections are out. ABVP has won president, vice-president and joint secretary’s posts while NSUI has won one post of secretary.
The results were delayed as counting remained a stop-start affair due to faulty EVMs and protest by the NSUI, which alleged that the polls were rigged in favour of the ABVP.
The counting, which began at 8 AM on Thursday, was suspended after members of NSUI and CYSS complained about EVM malfunction in some stations. The counting resumed following the contesting parties mutually agreed to take the process forward.
A member of the Congress-backed National Students’ Union Of India NSUI said the DUSU elections are like the “semi-final for the Lok Sabha elections” and will show what the young, educated voter wants. A member of the BJP-affiliated ABVP said the election results will help the general public and the media to draw a conclusion on the mood of voters and also give an idea of what is the trend in national politics, reported PTI.
