JNU: Left Unity Sweeps Student elections, Wins All Four Seats

Our Correspondent / New Delhi

The united front of Left student groups won all four central panel posts in Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) Students’ Union elections, defeating ABVP.

N Sai Balaji was elected the President and Sarika Choudhary the Vice President. Aejaz Ahmed won the post of General Secretary while Amutha has been elected as Joint Secretary.

The Left-backed All India Students’ Association, Students’ Federation of India, Democratic Students’ Federation and All India Students’ Federation had contested the polls jointly.

The counting of votes was suspended after ABVP leaders allegedly broke into counting centres and roughed up Election Committee members.The ABVP, however, rejected the charges and claimed that the counting was started without informing them. The election committee did not name the persons responsible for the violence. The voter turnout in the election was 67.8 per cent, believed to be the highest in six years.
