As the counting of votes for DUSU elections has ended, the results came massively in the favor of BJP affiliated Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP), who managed to bag three seats out of the total four. 
 
 
ABVP won the DUSU elections when Amit Tanwar was elected as president of DUSU, Priyanka Chabri got elected as vice president and Ankit Sangwan as secretary while the post of joint secretary went to Mohit Sangwan of National Students Union of India (NSUI). 
 
 
Interestingly, this year’s polling turnout came out to be lowest in five years with only 36.2 percent votes dropping in to the ballot boxes. In 2011, the voting percentage was 36.5 percent.
 
 
2010 voting percentage came out to be the lowest of all times with only 36 percent. 
 
 
The admission chaos and delay in declaration of results were other reasons attributed for the low turnout.
