ABVP’s candidates Ankiv Basoya, Shakti Singh and Jyoti Choudhary won the posts of president, vice president & joint secretary respectively whereas National Students’ Union of India (NSUI), Congress’ students’ arm won the post of secretary. Earlier today, the counting had been suspended for a few hours after 6 EVMs stopped working. Accusing the administration and the police of being ‘involved’ in the malfunctioning of EVMs, the NSUI chief Fairoz Khan urged everyone to raise their voices against ‘democracy’s brutal execution’.
ABVP, in response, said that this is a ‘Congress and Aam Aadmi Party style of politics’ as they (NSUI and CYSS, students’ wings of respective parties) started spreading rumours of on tampered EVMs.
When loss looks inevitable, clutching onto the excuse of ‘tampered EVMs’ is an old and juvenile technique! ABVP urges both the organisations to not interrupt the counting and face the results gracefully. #DUSUElection2018 #ABVP4DUSU
