The Congress party has hailed the victory of the NSUI in two out of the four major posts in the DUSU polls. "Modi has effectively jumped into the DUSU campaign to help ABVP", Neeraj Mishra, NSUI National Media coordinator was quoted by CNNNews18.

The counting of votes for the Delhi University Students Union (DUSU) elections began today, at a community hall near Kingsway Camp in New Delhi amid tight security and video recording. ABVP's Mahamedhaa Nagar and Uma Shankar won the posts of Secretary and Joint Secretary respectively. Over 54,000 votes were polled for each of these posts.

The NSUI has demanded recounting of the votes for the Joint Secretary post, which it claims its candidate had won. Earlier, the youth wing of the Congress had won the student elections in Rajasthan, which is ruled by the BJP, and in Punjab, where the Congress registered a resounding victory in the Assembly elections. But the scenario changed after the recounting and ABVP bagged two posts.

Although the University is known to be a Left bastion, a spate of incidents, relating to ideology, over the last one year had created the impression that the RSS-backed body was in the ascendancy and that it would win over fresh converts in herds.The results prove otherwise.

This amounts to rejection of the policies and rhetoric of Modi Govt. towards the youth, who have demonstrated that they are disappointed with the policies of the BJP and Modi Govt. There were even reports of how ABVP has even cast a whole bunch of NOTA votes on behalf of some colleges. "For most of us, whether ABVP or NSUI or any other party win, it hardly matters". HC in its Interim order had allowed contesting the election but advised the varsity not to declare the results for the president post.

Maken alleged that the CCTV cameras were not working when the recounting of votes was done for the post of joint secretary. The candidates who win the elections must be responsible for all the activities which will take place at the University. The results of DUSU elections 2017 are scheduled to be declared after the Delhi University was given the go-ahead to announce the results by the Delhi High Court. We won because of our work for the students despite being out of DU in 2014 and 2015. A triumph for liberal values on campus. But never during these years had any outfit asked for rejection of nomination papers on fraudulent grounds which had to be restored by the high court. ABVP has dominated the DUSU polls for the past few years riding the PM's huge popularity as well as playing up the RSS brand of ultra-nationalism.
