    MS UniversityThe National Students’ Union of India (NSUI) on Wednesday declared its candidates for the posts of general secretary (GS) and vice-president (VP) for the forthcoming M S University Students Union (MSUSU) polls scheduled on August 22.

    The student outfit has declared Gautam Nayak, a master’s student from Faculty of Arts as its candidate for the post of GS and Bhumika Barot, a master’s student from Faculty of Commerce as candidate for the post of VP.

    Both Nayak and Barot had contested the MSUSU polls last year as well but had lost in the frayagainst candidates supported by the Akhil Bharatiya Vidhyarthi Parishad (ABVP) by a margin of nearly 1,000 votes. NSUI has repeated them this year.

    Nayak is presently pursuing masters of arts (Russian) while Barot is student of masters of commerce (accountancy).

    Earlier on Tuesday, ABVP had declared its candidates for the two top posts. ABVP has roped in former faculty general secretary (FGS) of Faculty of Technology and Engineering ( FTE) Jayesh Balai for the post of GS and second year student of the Department of Economics of Faculty of Arts Sai Vichare for the post of VP.

    Interestingly, infighting between various groups of NSUI had resulted in delay of declaration of candidates. Sources suggest that the student outfit arrived at the final decision on the candidates only around 3.30 am on Wednesday morning.

    The names of the candidates were declared after offering prayers at the temple near the Faculty of Arts building on Wednesday noon where the student outfit showcased a united front in presence of Congress leaders. Later, the candidates started campaigning from Polytechnic College campus.

    The last date for filing nomination forms for the posts of GS, VP and faculty representatives this year is August 14.
