NEW DELHI: Like every election in the country, where there is influx of money and muscle power, Delhi University Student Union (DUSU) poll which is to be held on September 11 is not an exception.

No matter how much the Chhatra Yuva Sangharsh Samiti (CYSS)-student wing of Aam Aadmi Party which is making its first appearance says that it has bought the change in politics but the reality seems different.

The North campus of the varsity is practically covered with Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal’s posters, bus shelters and even putting up surveys done by the party showing them in lead.CYSS also held a DURocks concert recently in Talkatora stadium to woo the young voters which the opponents alleged is violating the Lyngdoh commitee rules.

Three University special buses have been started by the state transport minister Gopal Rai all bearing the posters and stickers of CYSS.     

The need for this attention seems to be in place if it comes to core politics- it is the first test for AAP after wining the Delhi assembly polls and the political opponents are waiting to pounce on if it fails this test.

“There has not been a single violation by the student wing. NSUI and ABVP have not left any wall in the city which does not bear its posters. They are attacking our supporters in the colleges, which shows their nervousness” said Anmol Panwar CYSS Vice-President.

Although Akhil Bhartiya Vidyarthi Parishad(ABVP) Delhi Secretary Saket Bahuguna has different views, the BJP backed student wing sees this as an attack on the autonomy of the prestigious Delhi University.

“CYSS is extremely desperate, look how the CM, deputy CM all the stars are campaigning for student polls.They are throwing everything in this which clearly shows their hunger for votes. Students are seeing this and will reply” Bahuguna said.

The pre-election campaign of the polls is going to be over after the nominations process ends on Friday 12 noon and the election campaigning will end on September 9, the results will be declared on September 12.

“CYSS feels confident of winning the polls as the student community is supporting us” said Panwar.
