NSUI wins 3 seats; PUSU gets 1

The National Students Union of India(NSUI) student wing of the Congress party has won three posts of Panjab University's student polls.
NSUI has won three posts of polls, the results of which were declared on Thursday. Jashan Kamboj of the NSUI, who was elected as the president, won by 611 votes. The post of vice-president and general secretary was also won by the NSUI candidates.
The Panjab University Students Union (PUSU) won the position of joint secretary.
NSUI leader Jashan Kamboj was elected President, Karanvir S Mahal  the Vice President and Vani Sood Secretary of the council. The post of Joint Secretary was won by Panjab University Students Union's (PUSU) Karanbir S Randhawa.
Earlier it was neck-to-neck between NSUI and SFS. NSUI was leading on the president's post with 2,019 votes. The SFS was leading initially, but was later trailing at 1,665.

The polling began at 9:30am onwards in the morning.

This year, 15,666 students decided the fate of the student leaders. It was a three-cornered contest between Students For Society (SFS), National Students Union of India (NSUI) and Panjab University Student Union (PUSU).
CM of Punjab Captain Amarinder also congratulated NSUI for winning the polls.
The PUSU-led alliance had swept the polls in 2016 but is faction-ridden this time. Ironically, the party had made an alliance with a faction of the NSUI — NSUISF — last year. This time, however, both the NSUI factions got reunited and the Congress student wing, which stood fourth last year, was among the front-runners this time.
Voting was held on the PU campus amid tight security as well as for student councils in the respective affiliated colleges in Chandigarh.
