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.
