ABVP registered a historic victory in the Cochin University for Science and Technology (CUSAT) students’ union election. Akshay Vinod who contested for ABVP won as a seat in the Senate. ABVP got 873 votes, SFI got 247 and KSU got 110 votes.
Akshay Vinod’s nomination was rejected by the university due to the interference from the left leaning teachers and students. Later he approached the Kerala High Court and got a court order which declined the university decision.
