The Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) swept the Delhi University Students’ Union polls by winning three out of four posts, while the National Students’ Union of India (NSUI) bagged only one.
The counting was delayed by nearly two hours yesterday as several candidates turned up late. Several allegations were made of malfunctioning of Electronic Voting Machines at the polling booths that halted voting for some time.
The voting percentage this year was at 39. 90, nearly six percent lower than last year’s 44.46 percent. More than 1.3 lakh students were eligible to cast votes in this year’s DUSU elections. To prevent any untoward incident, around 400 police personnel were deployed in the North Campus.
