The scholars have as soon as once more proven their belief in us. We are going to proceed to struggle for his or her rights and work on points that concern college students.

“The security of ladies on campus, fund cuts, scholarship hike, infrastructural and water disaster are among the many prime priorities of the scholars union to start with,” he added.

Amid cries of ‘Lal Salaam’ and ‘Jai Bhim’, the profitable college students have been hailed by their supporters. Crimson, white and blue flags have been waved by the scholars to rejoice the victory of the candidates.

Avijit Ghosh from the College students’ Federation of India (SFI) trounced ABVP’s Deepika Sharma by 927 votes to win the vice-president’s submit. Ghosh obtained 2,409 votes as towards 1,482 votes by Sharma.

The Left’s Mohammad Sajid gained the joint secretary’s submit by defeating ABVP’s Govind Dangi by 508 votes. His was the bottom victory amongst all of the 4 winners.

The United Left panel contains AISA, Democratic College students’ Federation (DSF), College students’ Federation of India (SFI) and the All India College students’ Federation (AISF).
