New Delhi: Polls have concluded in the Jawaharlal Nehru University campus on Friday. BJP affiliated ABVP, the Leftist Students Federation of India (SFI) and All India Students Association (AISA) have been at loggerheads to secure prime positions in the JNU Students Union.
Counting is underway and an exit poll by Central Panel suggests that ABVP has lost its ground in the current 150 vote count. Mohit from the Joint Left is reportedly leading with 85 votes followed by Rahul from BAPSA for the President’s post. Amal from Left and Banshidhar from BAPSA are the two top contenders for Vice President. Even in the post of General Secretary, Satarupa of Left leads with 97 votes.
Madhuja Sen Roy, President of Bengal State Committee (SFI) is overwhelmed with the speculations. “Leftist groups have ideally reverted to ABVP’s Shutdown JNU agenda. We can expect a positive end to the polls,” she said.
The above results are subject to change as the vote count may differ. The results are likely to be out by September 12.
