New Delhi: Congress student's wing NSUI on Saturday won the Delhi University Students Union President's post while candidates of BJP's ABVP swept the other three top posts of the body.
National Student's Union of India nominee Ajay Chikara won the President's post of the DUSU, while Akhil Bhartiya Vidyarthi Parishad candidate Vikas Choudhary was elected as the Vice-president of the student's body in the low-turnout elections that were held on Saturday.
Only a little over 35 per cent of votes were registered in the high-stakes elections, thanks to the heavy rains that lashed the capital on Saturday.
Chikara defeated his nearest rival Neha Singh of ABVP by a margin of 2,357 votes. While Chikara polled 11,164 votes, Singh got 8,807 votes.
The posts of Vice President, Secretary and Joint Secretary were all won by the ABVP, whose campaign was centered on alleged corruption in the Congress-led UPA Government.
Vikas Choudhary polled 11,855 votes, while NSU's Bhupinder Choudhary got 8,075 votes in the elections to the Vice President's post.
In the contest for the Secretary's post, ABVP's Vikas Yadav won by a margin of 2,351 votes defeating his nearest rival of NSUI's Parag Sharma.
ABVP's Deepak Bansal will be the new Joint Secretary of the DUSU as he trounced his NSUI rival Asish Choudhary by 2,105 votes.
Last year, the ABVP had won three of the top posts of the student's boy, including that of the President in the elections whose campaign was centered around the alleged corruption in Commonwealth Games.
