United Left Sweeps JNUSU Polls, Wins All Four Central Panel Posts

New Delhi:

The Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) election committee has announced the results of Students' Union polls (JNUSU) officially today and the United Front of left student groups (AISA, SFI, AISF, DSF) won all four central panel posts in the polls which was conducted in September first week. SFI's Aishe Ghosh has been elected as JNUSU president with 2,313 votes, defeating ABVP's Manish Jangid, who got 1,128 votes, reported PTI. The announcement of the results of JNUSU was kept on stay by the Delhi High Court after petitions were filed by JNU students Anshuman Dubey and Amit Kumar Dwivedi.

Saket Moon was elected JNUSU vice president and bagged 3,365 votes. Moon defeated ABVP's Shruti Agnihotri, who got 1,335 votes. 

Satish Chandra Yadav was elected general secretary. He polled 2,518 votes to defeat Sabareesh PA, who got 1355 votes. 

Md Danish was elected joint secretary with 3,295 votes and he defeated Sumanta Kumar Sahu.

The Delhi High Court today allowed the Jawaharlal Nehru University election committee to declare the results of the students union polls held on September 6.

The court also allowed JNU to notify the poll result in accordance with the Lyngdoh Committee recommendations.

"JNU is permitted to notify the result in accordance with the recommendation of Lyngdoh Committee," said Justice Sanjeev Sachdeva while disposing a students' plea alleging that their nominations for the polls were illegally rejected for elections of councillor in Jawaharlal Nehru University Students' Union (JNUSU).

Students of the university had cast their vote for a number of posts in the students' body on September 6. A 67.9 per cent voting was recorded the counting for which will begin later in the evening.

One of the grievances raised by a petitioner was that the election commission of the university has reduced the number of councillor seats from 55 to 46. 

He said that this was against recommendations of the Lyngdoh Committee that enables each school or department to have representation in the student body.
