Students Union election: Hot War ahead in University of Hyderabad polls

Hyderabad: Now all eyes on University of Hyderabad which became a political hotbed after the suicide of Rohith Vemula. On Saturday, student wing of Left-leaning parties sweep the JNU Students Union polls.


The Left-backed Students Federation of India(SFI) was part of the winning alliance in JNUSU election and won the UoH students union election last year.

This year, JNU protests against the hanging of Afzal Guru, while The UoH was in the headlines over the protests against hanging of Yakub Memon.

Even though the UoH students union is to be dissolved and election notification yet to be released. The Students Union election will most probably be conducted by the end of this month.

The ABVP – a BJP student wing is retaliating with its win in DUSU elections, while Left-backed student parties are trolling ABVP for its loss at JNU.

This year it is not confirmed that SFI and ASA would form an alliance. Last year, ASA and SFI contested separately, but both came together after the suicide of Rohith Vemula.
