TMCP sweeps campus polls in Bengal, SFI draws a blank

The Trinamool Chhatra Parishad (TMCP) has swept all 26 Calcutta University colleges that elected students’ unions on Wednesday while CPM students’ wing SFI drew a blank along with the SUCI’s DSO. TMCP on Wednesday got a walkover in key colleges like Scottish Church, Surendranath, Vidyasagar, Jaipuria and North City where the opposition student bodies failed to field candidates. Asutosh College alone proved a minor challenge for TMCP. Here, Chhatra Parishad bagged 10 seats against 92 by TMCP.

While SFI complained of strongarm tactics by TMCP, an upbeat TMCP leader Suhit Shyam said: “It only shows that students still have faith in the good governance of Trinamool supremo Mamata Banerjee.” Claims by Shyam, were, however, rejected by DSO member Gopal Singh Mishra, a first-year PG student of Islamic History. He was allegedly beaten up by TMCP supporters on CU’s Alipore campus on Tuesday afternoon. Earlier, DSO won Jogomaya Devi College election while SFI won the Victoria College polls.
