National Students Union of India(NSUI) bagged two crucial posts in the Delhi University Students Union(DUSU) elections which were held on Tuesday.
The DUSU elections had witnessed 43 per cent voter turnout.
NSUI candidate Rocky Tusheed won the president's post by a margin of 1,590 votes. Kunal Sehrawat defeated Akhil Bhartiya Vidyarthi Parishad(ABVP) candidate by 175 votes to win the vice-president's post.
Akhil Bhartiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) won two posts - joint secretary and general secretary.
ABVP's Mahamedha Nagar defeated NSUI's Meenakshi Meena to win the secretary's post while Uma Shankar cornered the joint secretary's post defeating NSUI's Uma Shankar by 342 seats.
The elections ensures Congress-backed NSUI is back at the forefront of student politics in the national capital while the BJP-backed ABVP would be feeling a bit let down although the party might feel it has held its own by winning two posts.
Last year, the ABVP had bagged three posts while NSUI could manage just the joint secretary's post.
