United Left sweeps JNUSU polls, Dhananjay from AISA elected president

NEW DELHI: The United Left panel effected a clean sweep in the Jawaharlal Nehru University Students’ Union election, defeating its nearest rival the RSS-affiliated ABVP on Sunday.

In the polls that happened after a hiatus of four years, Dhananjay from the All India Students Association (AISA) won the JNUSU president post by securing 2,598 votes against Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad’s (ABVP) Umesh C Ajmeera who secured 1,676 votes.

Avijit Ghosh from the Students Federation of India (SFI) trounced ABVP’s Deepika Sharma to win the vice-president post.

BAPSA candidate Priyanshi Arya, who was supported by the Left, won the general secretary post by defeating the ABVP’s Arjun Anand.
