DUSU Election Results Live: The ABVP, the student wing of the BJP, has bagged three posts, including that of the president, in the Delhi University Students Union (DUSU) elections. The NSUI, the student wing of the Congress, won only one seat. ABVP’s Ankiv Basoya won the presidential post with a margin of 1,744 votes while party’s candidate Shakti Singh was declared as the vice president after he won with a margin of 7,673 votes. NSUI’s Akash Choudhary won the secretary’s post while ABVP’s Jyoti emerged victorious on the joint secretary post. Choudhary, the lone winning candiadte of the NSUI, alleged that fair elections were not conducted and data of seven EVMs were missing. The Chief Electoral Officer in Delhi clarified that the EVMs used in DUSU elections have not been issued by the Election Commission and it seems to have been procured privately. The counting had to be suspended for few hours following glitch in the EVMs but was resumed in the evening amid heavy police deployment. The NSUI demanded fresh polling, while the ABVP demanded resumption of counting. “There are only 8 candidates so how is it possible that votes were cast to a 10th candidate? All machines were fine till Wednesday. Police and administration are involved in this," Fairoz Khan, NSUI president, alleged. DUSU polls were held on Wednesday with a voter turnout of 44.46 per cent. Polling took place at 52 centres in the colleges. There were 23 candidates in the fray.
