NSUI candidates attacked during DUSU poll campaigning

New Delhi, Sep 9 (IANS) The Delhi University Students Union poll touched a new low on Wednesday when two NSUI candidates were allegedly attacked by the supporters of CYSS and ABVP at a south campus college while they were campaigning.

“Today (Wednesday), the supporters of CYSS and ABVP attacked our candidates for DUSU poll Pradeep Vijayran and Prerna Singh with aluminium rods when they were campaigning in PGDAV College. It is a shameful day in DUSU poll history,” Delhi state NSUI president Vikas Chikara told IANS.

The Congress-affiliated National Students Union of India has fielded Pradeep Vijayran and Prerna Singh for the post of president and vice-president, respectively, in the DUSU poll this year.

Chikara blamed the Aam Aadmi Party’s debutant student wing, Chhatra Yuva Sangharsh Samiti (CYSS), and Akhil Bhartiya Vidyarthi Parishadh (ABVP) for the attack.

“At around 10.30 a.m., the goons of CYSS and ABVP asked them not to campaign in the college campus. When refused, they attacked our candidates with rods. Vijayran and Singh have suffered injuries in the incident,” he said.

He also claimed that the people who thrashed the NSUI candidates were not students of the college.

“CYSS’s presidential candidate Kuldeep Bidhuri’s brother was also one among the attackers,” he said, adding that “we are going to lodge a police complaint in this connection at the nearby police station”.

CYSS denied the charges and termed it “baseless”.

CYSS vice-president Anmol Panwar said: “All the allegations made by NSUI members against CYSS and its supporters are baseless.”

“No one from CYSS was involved in any attack on NSUI candidates. They do not have any proof regarding our involvement in the attack,” Panwar said.

ABVP representatives remained unavailable for comment on the issue.
