Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi on Wednesday congratulated the party’s student wing National Students Union of India (NSUI) for winning the top two posts in the Delhi University Students Union (DUSU) polls .
“Congratulations @nsui on a stellar performance & Pres win in DUSU! Thank students of DU for reposing faith in Congress ideology,” Rahul Gandhi who is on a two-week long tour of the US tweeted.
In a stunning comeback, the NSUI bagged two of the four top positions, of President and Vice President in the DUSU polls, while the RSS-affiliated ABVP managed to win the posts of Secretary and Joint Secretary.
Rocky Tuseed is the new DUSU president.
Last year, the Akhil Bharatiya Vidhyarthi Parishad (ABVP) had won three seats, except the Joint Secretary post, which was won by the NSUI.
Congress leader Ajay Maken tweeted: “Congratulations @NSUI. Won 3 out of 4 seats in DUSU including President.”
On Tuesday, students from 51 colleges cast their ballot to choose the four central panel posts in the DUSU elections that saw a triangular fight among the RSS-backed ABVP, Congress’ NSUI, and CPI-ML Liberation’s AISA.
