India DUSU elections: ABVP winners celebrate victory, NSUI alleges cheating

DUSU elections: ABVP winners celebrate victory, NSUI alleges cheating

The counting had to be suspended for a few hours following a glitch in the EVMs but was resumed in the evening amid heavy police deployment

New Delhi: The ABVP, the student wing of the Rashtriya Swayamsewak Sangh, on Thursday bagged three posts, including that of the president, in the Delhi University Students Union (DUSU) elections. The NSUI, the student wing of the Congress, won only one seat. 

ABVP’s Ankiv Basoya won the presidential post with a margin of 1744 votes while party’s candidate Shakti Singh was declared as the vice president after he won with a margin of 7673 votes. NSUI’s Akash Choudhary won the secretary’s post while ABVP’s Jyoti emerged victorious on the joint secretary post.

The counting had to be suspended for a few hours following a glitch in the EVMs but was resumed in the evening amid heavy police deployment.

The ABVP candidates who won the Delhi University Students’ Union (DUSU) elections celebrated their victory and vowed to fulfill the promises made in their manifesto even as the sole NSUI winner alleged cheating in the results.

 

ABVP’s Ankiv Basoya, who won the president’s post is pursuing an MA in Buddhist Studies. He has been associated with the Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad since 2015.

“Our election manifesto said we would dedicate 50% of the DUSU budget to women safety, so I will now work towards making the campus safer for women,” he said.

“Our party has worked for the welfare of students and we will continue to do so,” Basoya added.

ABVP’s Shakti Singh, who won the vice-president’s post, is a national-level boxer and he was the only candidate to have not done his graduation from the varsity.

He completed his graduation from MIT Pune and is studying law at the Delhi University’s Faculty of Law.

“Since I am a sportsperson, I will work towards promoting sports culture in the university. We’d also mentioned promoting sports in our manifesto. This win indicates the country’s students are with the ABVP,” he said.

The Congress-backed National Students’ Union of India’s (NSUI) Aakash Choudary, who won the post of secretary, was the union president of Sri Aurobindo College where he did his graduation. He is currently pursuing law.

“This victory has been possible because of the students’ love for me. I was also the president of Aurobindo College due to the love of students,” he said.

About the loss of his party on the other posts, he alleged, “There has been cheating on the other posts and we will fight against the unfair treatment meted out to us.”

“Seven EVMs were not taken into consideration while counting and we want them to reveal the data of those EVMs,” he said.

ABVP’s Jyoti Chaudhary, who won the post of joint secretary, completed her graduation from Vivekananda College and is currently pursuing an MA in Buddhist Studies.
