The RSS-backed ABVP won the three top posts — president, vice president, and joint secretary — in the DUSU election.
New Delhi: A day after the results of the Delhi University Student Union (Dusu) elections were announced, Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal questioned the Election Commission (EC) on Friday over the privately sourced electronic voting machine (EVMs) used in the polls.
“From where can you procure EVMs privately? Doesn’t ECI claim that no one can manufacture or buy or sell EVMs privately? Isn’t someone, who’s found in possession of EVMs without EC’s permission, held guilty of criminal offence?” he asked in a tweet.
The RSS-backed Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) wrenched three of four seats in DUSU polls while the Congress affiliated NSUI (National Students’ Union of India) took one post. The Aam Aadmi Party affiliated CYSS, which fought in alliance with AISA, came third.
The RSS-backed ABVP won the three top posts — president, vice president, and joint secretary — in the DUSU election, while the Congress affiliated NSUI took the secretary’s post.
The election to select the heads of the Delhi University’s student body was marred by allegations of cheating after the chief electoral officer in the national capital clarified that the EC never gave the EVMs — several of which malfunctioned on counting day — that were used in the campus polls.
