NEW DELHI: Delhi BJP President Satish Upadhyay today said that the performance of the party's student wing, ABVP, in the DUSU polls indicates "mood of the youth of the nation".

Upadhyay said that the victory of the Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) in the Delhi University Students Union (DUSU) polls as well as its performance in the elections in Jawaharlal Nehru University, indicates that students who study here want composite development and are not moved by "promises of freebies like free wi-fi".

"Youth have trusted the commitment towards skill development over the hollow promises of freebies like free wi-fi," he said.

He made the remarks while addressing a press conference here today a day after ABVP's clean sweep in the DUSU polls, statement issued by the party said.

BJP MP Ramesh Bidhuri, who was also present at the press conference said, "in a democracy decent decorum and abidance to guidelines play an important role. In these elections the way Delhi's ruling Aam Aadmi Party directly interfered in DUSU elections causes pain and concern.

"The healthy change seen in students politics after the implementation of Lyngdoh Committee Reforms has suffered a set back in this election due to mainstream party's interference." The Delhi BJP President also said that both the varsities "were well established centres for higher education where students from all over India especially from Purvanchal, Bihar, West Bengal and North East study in large numbers".

"For long it was believed that students from these areas support communist or leftist thought process and keep distance from BJP or ABVP's ideology based on nationalism.

"In these elections students from all over the country have shown faith in composite development and slogans of pseudo secularism and socialism do not attract them any more," he has said as per the statement.
