Ahead of DUSU elections, ABVP uses social media to seek votes

DUSU elections: ABVP eyes fifth consecutive win as voting begins

The colleges near or in the campus recorded a relatively higher voter turnout, PTI reported. All the students are coming out for the voting of Union (DUSU) elections 2017.

Chief Election Officer S B Babbar told PTI that the authorities received calls from colleges about a good number of voter turnout.

For a smooth conduct of the elections, the DUSU election committee has deployed a total of 248 EVMs in all 40 morning colleges.

Historically, a bipolar electoral affair, the election this year in Delhi University has seen the rise of another student group, the radical left AISA, which has found many supporters among students after the brawl at Ramjas College in February and turned the usually bilateral contest between the ABVP and NSUI into a multi-cornered fight.

The RSS-affiliated Akhil Bhartiya Vidhyarthi Parishad (ABVP) is eyeing its fifth consecutive win in the Delhi University Students Union (DUSU) polls as the students vote today to elect a new panel.

Summary: Babbar alleging violations of election rules and Lyngdoh Committee norms allegedly by the ABVP and Congress' NSUI.

Altogether 10 candidates are in the fray for the president's post. According to students, this could have happened due to violence in the college earlier this year over a literary event where JNU student Umar Khalid was invited to talk. "Don't you think that you have to play a proactive role in deciding how you are reflected in the society?" said the CEO in an appeal to the students asking them to elect responsible and responsive representatives.

For the posts of vice-president and general secretary, there are five candidates each in the fray and four for the post of joint-secretary. Bhagat fought the election from the ABVP and got 671 votes.

The university had moved the court against its September 8 order on a petition by NSUI presidential candidate Rocky Tuseed, who wanted counting to be delayed. Justice Kaur, however, made it clear that election outcome will be subject to its final decision in the matter where Tuseed has challenged the University Election Commission's order rejecting his nomination.

The results of DUSU elections 2017 are being declared after the Delhi University was given a go-ahead to declare the results by the Delhi High Court.
