Out of the total poll of 1807 votes, SFI’s Kushi Ram Veram secured 1080 votes to be declared as SCA president. Vipin Mehta by securing 1002 votes won as vice-president, Sunita Ranot polled 1040 votes to be declared winner as General Secretary and Ankush Mandyal by polling 1075 votes was winner for the joint secretary position in the elections.
The communist outfit has won the students body election for 10th year in a row.
Despite making a strong bid the BJP supported ABVP was unable to match the strength of their arch rivals on the campus with Baldve Deshta getting 642 votes for president, Priyanka Thakur 710 for vice-president, Rajinder Singh 684 for general secretary and Deepak Kumar 642 votes for Joint secretary.
Congress supported NSUI on the campus has once again failed to have any impact as its panel of Uminder Kumar got a mere 43 votes for president, Vimal got 86 votes for vice-president, Pankaj Kumar got 99 votes for general secretary and Kamlesh Kumar got 78 votes for joint secretary.
