South Kashmir boy wins Delhi University college polls
Aeshal Nisar beat the most fearsome odd and bagged the title of President in Dehli University’s college of vocational studies. Nisar is a third-year history honors student from College of Vocational Studies and won the college president polls, with a lead of 235 votes over his rival, DNA reported.
According to the report Aeshal Nisar Dalal, who hails south Kashmir’s Islamabad district of Kashmir, filed nomination as an independent candidate to contest for the post of president in his college. But it was not easy for him to achieve this post. From “anti-national campaign to police harassment,” candidates of Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) had pulled off every stunt possible to deter Aeshal Nisar from filing nominations for Delhi University college polls.
But the dedication and persistence of Nisar did not bow before the atrocities which were made over him and defeated ABVP candidate Visual Bidhuri, the report mentioned.
The day, Nisar had to fill his nomination papers, he was called to the Malavi Nagar police station. “I contacted my few friends and they said me, “Don’t worry, tell the police that I would come after nomination day,” DNA quoted him as saying.
The police called him the next day again and asked details about his family. “I had to clarify during my campaign as to why I was not anti-national. I was even framed as anti-national by a local paper in the city on the basis of a police complaint based on hearsay. It was very disheartening and came as a shock to me,” Nisar said to DNA.
The intention was to scare me. I could feel that,” said Nisar, adding that the complaint was filed by outgoing president Bidhuri, who is a college pass out.
Aeshal has been an active member of a lot of societies in college, he has been working for his college development and betterment from past two years and thus was the president of women development cel Aaghaaz.
Aeshal not only won the hearts of students of his college but also proved that being a Kashmiri does not restrict your opinions but rather urges you to prove people wrong and achieve the desired height, DNA reported.
