New Delhi, Sep 13 In a stunning comeback, the Congress’ students wing, National Students Union of India (NSUI), on Wednesday bagged three of the four top positions, of President, Vice President and Joint Secretary, in the Delhi University Students Union (DUSU), while the RSS-affiliated ABVP managed only the Secretary post.
Rocky Tuseed is the new DUSU president.
Last year, the Akhil Bharatiya Vidhyarthi Parishad (ABVP) had won three seats, except the Joint Secretary post, which was won by the NSUI.
Congress leader Ajay Maken tweeted: “Congratulations @NSUI. Won 3 out of 4 seats in DUSU including President.”
Congress leader and former minister Shakeel Ahmed also tweeted” ” Great! After Punjab, NSUI wins DU. Youngsters of India rejecting Pseudo Nationalism & Politics of hatred on campuses.”
National president of Swaraj India, Yogendra Yadav also tweeted. He wrote “Winning organisations are different but losing organisation is one – the ABVP”. He further wrote that “winning has different meanings but losing has only one message – cannot accept politics of hatred.”
Gur Mehar who was once trolled by the ABVP and the BJP supporters for her statement on surgical strike also tweeted. “Congratulations to every DU student, you’ve reclaimed your university back. You’ve proved violence and hooliganism will not be tolerated!” she wrote.
On Tuesday, students from 51 colleges cast their ballot to choose the four central panel posts in the DUSU elections that saw a triangular fight among the RSS-backed ABVP, Congress’ NSUI, and CPI-ML Liberation’s AISA.
