The elections of the student council has set alarm bells ringing for the National Student Union of India (NSUI). The NSUI might have secured three seats but its margin on the presidential seat has gone down.
Last year, NSUI candidate Chandan Rana had secured 3,599 votes but this year its candidate Divyanshu Budhiraja could secure only 2,249 votes. Even in the absence of powerful Student Organisation of Panjab University (SOPU), the NSUI’s margin was thin.
On almost all the seats, SOI has given a tough time to NSUI and has remained close second on the posts of president and vice-president despite the fact that SOI was re-launched in February this year only.
