AAP’s student wing CYSS won’t contest DUSU elections
The Aam Aadmi Party’s (AAP) student wing, the Chhatra Yuva Sangharsh Samiti (CYSS), will not contest student union elections in Delhi University this year too. The CYSS, which was launched by AAP in 2014, contested the DU students’ union (DUSU) polls in 2015 but decided to give it a miss last year. The students’ wing said they are boycotting the DUSU polls this year as election in the university is only about “money and muscle power” rather than about real issues. We are boycotting the DUSU polls. The Lyngdoh Committee recommendations are not strictly followed. There is too much use of money and muscle power by students’ parties. They come in fleets of cars and canvass. This all needs to stop,” Abhash Chandela, said national in-charge of CYSS.
