The ABVP won posts of president, vice-president, secretary and joint secretary defeating Congress-affiliated National Students' Union of India (NSUI). Failing to open its account, the AAP-led Chhatra Yuva Sangharsh Samiti (CYSS) which made its debut at the campus polls this year finished at third position.
    
Satender Awana was elected president of DUSU while Sunny Dedha won vice president's post. Anjali Rana and Chhattarpal Yadav have been elected as secretary and joint secretary respectively.
    
Chief Election Officer for DUSU polls, DS Rawat said Awana polled 20,439 votes defeating Pradeep Vijayran of NSUI who polled 14,112 votes for the post of president.
    
Dedha, a law student defeated CYSS candidate Garima Rana by a margin of 7,570 votes. The margin for the posts of Secretary and Joint Secretary were 4,610 and 6,065 votes.
    
While Anjali Rana defeated NSUI's Amit Sehrawat to win the post of Secretary, Chhattarpal Yadav bagged the Joint Secretary position defeating NSUI's Deepak Choudhary.
    
"CYSS' efforts were confined to banners only. They were unaware of ground realities. We will remain among the students throughout the year and fulfill our promises," Awana, the newly-elected president said.
    
"We did not consider them (CYSS) a challenge, since they did not talk of real issues, they benefited us in a way," he added.
    
Celebrations broke out with bursting of crackers and loud cheering at the counting venue in Kingsway camp as the results were announced. The ABVP supporters lifted their candidates on shoulders and posed for pictures flashing the victory sign.
    
Last year too, ABVP had swept the polls trouncing NSUI to bag all four seats.
