New Delhi: Congress-backed National Students Union of India (NSUI) has made a stunning comeback by winning the top posts of president and vice-president in the Delhi University Students' Union (DUSU) elections.

In the election results which were announced on Wednesday, RSS-backed Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) had to satisfy with secretary and joint secretary positions.

NSUI's Rocky Tuseed won the president's position by defeating ABVP's Rajat Choudhary with a margin of 1,590 votes, while new vice-president Kunal Sehrawat snatched the seat from ABVP by 175 votes.

ABVP's Mahamedha Nagar defeated NSUI's Minakshi Meena by 2,624 votes to win the post of secretary while Uma Shankar set aside NSUI's Avinash Yadav by 342 votes.

NSUI, who won the president position after 2012, expressed the happiness on Twitter after the overwhelming victory.

Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi hailed the Congress ideology and congratulated the union on Twitter.

Amidst the elections, the interesting angle that emerged was that of NOTA, which was pressed more than 5,000 times in president's election.
