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

    A total of 43 per cent voter turnout was recorded in the DUSU elections held yesterday. Last year, the ABVP bagged three posts while the NSUI won the post of joint secretary.
