Ever since the Delhi Assembly election was announced,student leaders from across the capital have started lobbying for tickets.
At least two former student leaders of the Congress-backed NSUI and three leaders of the BJPs youth wing ABVP have applied to their party leadership for tickets.
These hopefuls have one thing in common they are all former office bearers of the Delhi University Students Union.
The NSUIs former DUSU president Amrita Dha-wan (2006) has applied to the PCC for a ticket from Tilak Nagar. Another former DUSU president,Ajay Chikara (2011),also of the NSUI,is seeking a ticket from Mundka. Nakul Bharadwaj of the ABVP had fought municipal elections last year from Patparganj on a BJP ticket.
