Left wins all posts in JNU polls, ABVP, NSUI trail

New Delhi, Sep 11 (IANS) The AISA-SFI combine on Saturday evening won all four seats in the Jawaharlal Nehru University Students Union (JNUSU) election.

The Students Federation of India (SFI) and the All India Students Association (AISA) bagged the posts of President, Vice President, General Secretary and Joint Secretary.

The BJP-affiliated Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) and the Congress-backed National Students Union of India (NSUI) were far behind in all four posts, the sources said, while the newly founded Birsa Ambedkar Phule Students Association (BAPSA) gave a closer fight.

The SFI, affiliated to the Communist Party of India-Marxist (CPI-M), and the AISA, the student wing of the Communist Party of India-Marxist-Leninist (CPI-ML), formed an alliance to fight the elections.

This was the first student election in the campus since the arrest of JNUSU President Kanhaiya Kumar — of the CPI-backed All India Students Federation — on charges of sedition after a group of students allegedly raised anti-India slogans at an event in February.
