New Delhi: Delhi University Student’s Union (DUSU) President Ankiv Basoya resigns from his post. Akhil Bhartiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) expelled the DUSU President from the party and asked him to resign from the post.
ABVP has asked DUSU’s president to resign from his post after the alleged fake degree row.
Basoya was accused of having a fake degree from Thiruvalluvar University. He was enrolled in Department of Buddhist Studies, Delhi University.
Newly elected Delhi University Students Union President Ankiv Baisoya was found to have submitted fake mark sheet and certificate for admission in Delhi University.
In his admission formalities in DU, Baisoya has submitted his degrees from Thiruvalluvar University, Tamil Nadu.
According to a letter written on October 3, the Thiruvalluvar University Registrar had communicated to the Principal Secretary, Department of Higher Education, Tamil Nadu government, that the DUSU President and DU student, Ankiv Baisoya, had not been a student of his university and that the certificate produced by him from that university is fake.
Ankiv Basoya has been active in Delhi University student politics since 2013. Earlier this year in September, he contested for the post of President, on the ticket of Akhil Bhartiya Vidyarthi Parishad and won the election. Baisoya defeated his rival NSUI candidate Sunny Chhillar with the margin of 1,744 votes.
Baisoya was elected President of the DU students’ union last month after a fierce poll battle between the RSS-backed Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP)– of which Baisoya is a member — and Congress’ National Students Union of India.
The “fake-degree” matter was taken up by the Congress’ student group last month. It produced a Thiruvalluvar University Registrar’s letter, written to the former’s state party chairman, informing that Baisoya was not a student of the said university.
