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 about promoting sports in our manifesto. This win indicates the country's students are with the ABVP," he said.

"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 MA in Buddhist Studies.
