Radical Left All India Students Association (AISA) bagged three of the four posts in the Jawaharlal Nehru University Students Union (JNUSU) elections but lost the post of president to Students Federation of India-JNU (SFI-JNU), it was announced Sunday.
"V. Lenin Kumar was declared as the president. He won by 200 votes, while Meenakshi Buragohain of AISA bagged the vice president's seat by 916 votes. The posts of general secretary and joint secretary too went to AISA. Shakeel Anjum won the general secretary's post with 850 votes while Piyush Raj won the joint secretary post by 250 votes," Abhishek Kumar, a former vice president of AISA, told IANS.
Polling was held on Friday. Around 30 candidates were in the fray for the posts of president, vice-president, general secretary and joint secretary.
In the 2007 elections, AISA, associated with the Communist Party of India-Marxist-Leninist Liberation had won all the four JNUSU posts.
SFI-JNU is a breakaway group of the Communist Party of India-Marxist's student wing.
