In a major comeback in the Delhi University Students Union (DUSU) elections, Congress-backed student wing National Students Union of India (NSUI) won the top two posts of president and vice-president on Wednesday. Rival Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) bagged the posts of secretary and joint secretary. Last year, ABVP had grabbed all the four posts.

As soon as the results were declared, Congress leaders were quick to declare NSUI’s victory as a sign of revival for the party. While congratulating NSUI, Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi thanked DU students for “reposing faith in Congress’ ideology”.

Congress MLA Randeep S Surjewala termed the victory as a wake-up call for Prime Minister Narendra Modi as he outlined the priorities of the youths.

Congress MP from Gujarat Ahmed Patel, too, congratulated NSUI.

Shashi Tharoor Congress MP from Thiruvananthapuram also congratulated the NSUI on their victory.

Started in 1954, students from 50 Delhi University colleges vote to elect office bearers to the positions of President, Vice-President, Secretary and Joint Secretary. A total of 43 per cent voter turnout was recorded in the polls held on Tuesday.

    Major Scams under UPA Government Bofors Scam: The Bofors scam looks like a trademark of scams and corruption in India. This scam in 1980s involved the then Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi, Hindujas and many other powerful names. The scam was about winning a bid to provide India with 155 mm field howitzers. The scam was related to the Indian defense and security, so was of much concern. 2G Spectrum Scam (2008): One of the biggest scams in India was the 2G scam, in which telecom minister A. Raja was charged for issuing 2G licenses to private telecom players at very cheap rates in 2008. No rules and regulations were followed but only favoritism was preferred while issuing the license. The scam cost Rs 1.76 lakh crore to the government. The government kept the entry fee for spectrum license at 2001 prices. Licenses was also issued to the companies with no prior experience in telecom. The mobile subscriber base in India touched 350 million in 2008 from 4 million in 2001. Satyam Scam (2009):

      Mr. Rahul, your biggest mistake is you have not yet learned to transform into an "Indian Politician". Nothing wrong in learning even from your enemies. Mr. Rahul , please learn some JU-MLA, do some Petrol Bunk Ad-ver-ti-se-me-nts, promise "Shining India" in Flex boards, try to feed the masses with the ar-yan purity of "kashmiri pandits", bring some holy animal into the scene, promise to ban Rs.2000/- Notes, spend more on "IT", to propagate stupidity and utter failure as great achievements. I hope you will learn the trick, for the good of INDIA.

          Only congratulations of Shri Rahul Gandhi will not work. He has to put all efforts to dedeat Modi associates. It is therefore necessary for him not to go abroad but work tirelessly in India as Amit Shah is touring from state to state and people to people. Pl oppose the false propaganda against Nehru family and ex PM Manmohan Singh as under the prime minister of both India as laid good foundations even though we are lacking scientific education and other technical skills at that time. Please kick out these communal forces from power as there is always danger looming over the heads of those people who are opposing the policies of the present government. They are getting votes from poor people but working for bullet train Ordinary trains for poor people are not safe but instead of paying attention for safety of train they are investing 110 crores in form of loan from Japan. Budgets for health, education has already been cut and they are dreaming to run bullet train. Kick BJP out.
