Samajwadi Chhatra Sabha, ABVP dominate Allahabad university polls
Saturday October 1, 2016 5:29 PM, PTI

Allahabad: The Samajwadi Chhatra Sabha and ABVP dominated the Allahabad University Students Union polls, with the RSS' students wing bagging the President's post.

However, unlike last year, when the ABVP had bagged all posts except that of the president, very few of its candidates were elected as office bearers.

Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad candidate Rohit Mishra was elected to the post of the president, defeating his nearest rival Ajit Yadav by a slender margin of 95 votes in the polls whose results declared late last night.

It is for the first time in the last five years when ABVP has won the President's post.

The Samajwadi Party Chhatra Sabha, which is the students' wing of the ruling Samajwadi Party in Uttar Pradesh, put up a strong performance.

Its candidates Adil Hamza and Shivbalak Yadav got elected to the posts of vice-president and general secretary respectively.

ABVP's Abhishek Kumar Pandey alias Yogi was elected as the joint secretary while Sabha's Manish Kumar Saini bagged the post of cultural secretary.

Notably, none of the women candidates were elected to any of the key posts despite the buoyancy that pervaded on the campus in the wake of the victory of Richa Singh last year, who became the first woman president of the AU students' union in several decades and had contested as an independent candidate.
