Rocky Tuseed with NSUI president Sonia Gandhi (NSUI)
On Wednesday, the Delhi High Court issued a notice to recently-elected Delhi University Students Union President Rocky Tuseed after a plea by ABVP’s Rajat Choudhry stating that the aforementioned shouldn’t have contested due to an FIR against him.

In his plea ABVP's Rajat Choudhry stated that NSUI's Rocky Tuseed has FIR against him in 2014 for attempted murder & criminal trespassing.

Reacting to the news, BJP IT cell head Amit Malviya tweeted: “Court issues notice to Rocky Tuseed, just elected DUSU Prez, questioning his election on ground of criminal antecedents. #KnowYourLegacy”

Delhi University authorities had earlier rejected the nomination papers of the NSUI presidential candidate Rocky Tusheed who contested after the intervention of the Delhi High Court and won with a big margin.

"This is not the only instance (where NSUI won in student elections). The atmosphere in the country is changing. Those who misled the youth, The youth are today teaching them a lesson. The NSUI won the Panjab University election and prior to that in Rajasthan University the NSUI sounded the victory bugle. It is a reflection of the changed atmosphere in the country," Tewari said.

In the past, there has never been an incident where nominations have been cancelled in students' polls and one has to move the court to get them restored. This is the manifestation of subversion of varsities by the BJP-led NDA government, he claimed.
