New Delhi:  The Congress-linked NSUI or National Students Union of India has won the top two posts in the Delhi University Students Union, leaving two for its rival Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP), which is linked to the BJP.

The ABVP, which held three posts in the outgoing panel, has kept the posts of Joint Secretary and Secretary.

The NSUI has won the president’s post for the first time since 2012. The union described it as a “major comeback” and said that the mandate was a clear indication the student fraternity have “restored their faith in the Congress and our beloved leader Rahul Gandhi”.

The ABVP has been dominating the Delhi University elections for the past few years. Last year, the ABVP had won three posts while NSUI was able to make a comeback by winning one post – that of joint secretary.

An ABVP member, reacting to the turnaround, said: “We were in the union for four years. These are dirty tricks by the Left and NSUI. The Left put out dummy candidates to help the NSUI win.”
