The counting of the votes started on Saturday at 9 am. The post of president, vice-president and secretary has been swept by the ABVP, but ceded the joint secretary post to the NSUI.
For the ABVP, Amit Tanwar have been elected president of DUSU, Priyanka Chabri won vice-president’s post and Ankit Sangwan have been elected as secretary. NSUI candidate Mohit Sangwan have been elected for joint secretary.
The polling went off peacefully and no incidents of violence were reported, the police said on Friday.
While four colleges didn’t conduct their students’ union polls, many students kept away from the DUSU central panel polls.
As per HT report, 91 candidates fought for the four crucial posts: 27 candidates for the post of president, 19 for vice-president, 24 for secretary and 21 for the post of joint secretary.
The AVBP had, in 2015, swept the DUSU polls, winning all of the four top positions.
