City: 

Congress-backed National Students Union of India (NSUI) today made a comeback in the Delhi University Students Union, bagging two of the four crucial DUSU posts including that of the president.

RSS-affiliated Akhil Bhartiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP), which has a stronghold in DUSU, bagged two seats, that of the joint secretary and the general secretary.

NSUI's Rocky Tusheed won the president's post by a margin of 1,590 votes defeating Rajat Chaudhary, while the party's Kunal Sehrawat defeated ABVP candidate Paarth Rana by 175 votes.

ABVP's Mahamedha Nagar defeated NSUI's Minakshi Meena by 2,624 votes to win the post of the secretary, while party's joint secretary candidate Uma Shankar defeated NSUI's Avinash Yadav by 342 votes.

A total of 43 per cent voter turnout was recorded in the DUSU elections held yesterday.

Last year, the ABVP bagged three posts while the NSUI won the post of joint secretary.
