DUSU Election Result 2018: ABVP wins president, VP, NSUI post of secretary
New Delhi, Sep 13: In the Delhi University Students' Union (DUSU) election, Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad's (ABVP) Ankiv Basoya, Shakti Singh and Jyoti Choudhary won the posts of president, vice president and joint secretary, respectively. NSUI's candidate Akash Choudhary has won the post of secretary.
Amid uproar over faulty EVMs during the Delhi University Students' Union (DUSU) election, the counting had to be stopped for some time. It later resumed and results were declared.
"EVMs haven't been issued/allotted to Delhi University by this office. It was also confirmed from State Election Commission that no such machines have been given by them too. It seems that Delhi University has procured these machines privately," said Election Officer Manoj Kumar, as per an ANI report.
Earlier today, the Congress-affiliated NSUI demanded that fresh polling be held for the Delhi University Students' Union (DUSU) election, while the RSS's student wing, the ABVP, wanted the counting of votes, which has been suspended, to be resumed.
DUSU election officer confirmed that the counting for the polls to four DUSU posts, which was held on Wednesday, was suspended after four EVMs were found to be faulty. He further cited the students' protest over the issue at the counting centre as the reason behind poll panel's decision to suspend counting.
The supporters of both the groups shouted slogans against the Delhi University (DU) administration and created a ruckus inside the counting centre. "A fresh date for the counting will be announced soon," an election officer for the DUSU polls said.
