Congress-backed National Students' Union of India (NSUI) swept the Rajasthan University students union elections.

Congress-backed National Students’ Union of India (NSUI) swept the Rajasthan University students union elections by winning the top four posts.

National Students’ Union of India (NSUI) bagged the posts of President, Vice-President, General Secretary and Joint Secretary, University PRO Bhupendra Singh Shekhawat said.

National Students’ Union of India (NSUI)’s Anil Chopra has been elected as the President of the students union, who defeated Shankarlal Gora of Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) by a margin of 700 votes.

Anil Chouhan has been elected as Vice-President, Vijay Deep Singh Tamaria as General Secretary and Surbhi Meena as Joint Secretary, Shekhawat said.

Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad’s sole candidate Banshilal Bahara won the post of Research Students’s representative, the PRO said.

Poll results were announced amidst tight police security around the University area.

Votes were polled on August 23 and on the same day the elections were stayed by the single bench of Rajasthan High Court.

Later, the court cancelled the polls observing that Lyngdoh Committee Recommendations have been violated.

However, with widespread violent protest by students, the Divisional Bench of High Court asked the University to announce the results.

Reacting on the results, Pradesh Congress Committee Vice President Dr Archna Sharma said students were tired of Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and voted against the Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad students.
