Amidst allegations of vote tampering, United-Left alliance wins JNU Students’ Union elections

The controversial elections to elect the office bearers of Jawaharlal Nehru University Students’ Union (JNUSU) have finally ended resulting in the left-unity candidates winning all the four posts, while ABVP has come second in all the four posts.

According to the reports, the United-Left alliance won the post of president, vice president, general secretary and joint secretary. N Sai Balaji has been elected as President after securing 2161 votes, Sarika Chaudhary won the post of Vice President with 2692 votes, Aejaz Ahmed Rather is the new General Secretary who secured the victory with 2423 votes, while Amutha Jayadeep got 2047 votes to get elected to the post of Joint Secretary by defeating the candidates of ABVP.

The JNUSU elections conducted on September 14th, were marked with huge controversy, as the left wing students union had allegedly resorted to violence against their rivals ABVP, who came close second against a Left-wing alliance, comprised of Students Federation of India (SFI), All India Students Federation (AISA), All India Student Federation (AISF), Democratic Students Federation (DSF) which was formed to fight the formidable right-wing student union.

We had earlier reported regarding the violence unleashed by Leftist goons against the students of JNU. It was alleged that the SFI and AISA, student wings of Communists Party of India (Marxist) and the Communist Party of India Liberation, respectively, were attempting vote counting fraud, as reportedly they were upset that they may lose out to ABVP.

This year elections saw the highest voter turnout in recent years, with nearly 68% students coming out to exercise their mandate. In comparison to last year, there has been a jump of nearly 10 per cent in voting.
