Delhi University Students’ Union (DUSU) elections were held on Tuesday with nearly 43 per cent voter turnout. "The morning colleges of the varsity recorded voter turnout of 45.3 percentage. The consolidated figure will be revealed after the final tally," S B Babbar, DUSU Chief Election Officer, said earlier.
He later said that the final tally of the elections was 43 per cent. According to professors tracking the polls, far-flung colleges under the central varsity recorded a poor turnout, whereas campus colleges exhibited a relatively higher voter-turnout.
In the college unions polling, which took place simultaneously with the DUSU polls, Akhil Bhartiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) won all the top positions - president, vice-president, secretary and joint secretary - in Laxmi BaiCollege, Vivekananda College and Shri Venkateshwara College.
The students' outfit also won top two positions in SGTB Khalsa College, Zakir Hussain College (Morning), Bhagini Nivedita College (BNC) among others.
Bigwigs like NSUI and ABVP flooded the streets with pamphlets near Satyawati College. NSUI supporters were seen campaigning for their presidential candidate Rocky Tusheedwith loud music systems blaring 'We love We Love Rocky'. The left-affiliated AISA also distributed pamphlets to students. The counting of votes will take place on Wednesday.
