DUSU polls: ABVP bags 3 posts, NSUI 1

New Delhi: The RSS-affiliated ABVP on Friday won three posts, including that of the president, in the Delhi University Students' Union (DUSU) polls, while the Congress-backed NSUI bagged the secretary's post. Celebrations broke out outside the counting centre in Kingsway Camp with supporters dancing to 'dhol' beats and rose petals being showered on the winners. The winners wearing garlands then proceeded to the varsity's Arts Faculty, from where they will take out a victory march.

Akshit Dahiya of the Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) defeated National Students Union of India (NSUI)'s Chetna Tyagi for the president's post by a margin of over 19,000 votes, the highest ever, the student outfit claimed.

"Our presidential candidate has won by a margin of over 19,000 votes, the highest ever margin in recent times. We have won on three posts. We intend to start 'Mission Sahasi 2.0' to empower women," Monika Chaudhary, National Media Convenor, ABVP said.

In 2014, Ashish Mathur of ABVP had won the post of Joint Secretary by a margin of over 11,800 votes, the party said.

The posts of vice president and joint secretary were won by ABVP's Pradeep Tanwar and Shivangi Kharwal by a margin of 8,574 and 2,914 votes, respectively.

NSUI bagged the secretary's post with its candidate Ashish Lamba, who is also celebrating his 24th birthday on Friday, defeating ABVP's Yogit Rathi by a margin of 2,053 votes.

"ABVP fielded Yogit Rathi who was college president

of Ramjas College when

the violence took place in 2017. The students have given a clear mandate against violence," NSUI's Delhi president Akshay Lakra said.
