He said applications could be filled online on www.cyss.in till August 5.
The party will go through all applications to select the most deserving candidates in a free and fair manner, Yadav said.
“Students with good credentials, clean background and innovative ideas to do something for the institution and hard work they are willing to put in, will be given tickets by CYSS to contest,” he said.
“Several student groups working in the DU for student welfare will be supported by us to contest the DUSU polls. We have already begun our campaign for DUSU polls,” the CYSS state president added.
CYSS has been working since 2013, but it did not contest the last two elections.
