Thiruvananthapuram: The All India Congress Committee (AICC) on Friday appointed National Students’ Union of India (NSUI) national coordinator Aloshious Xavier as the state president of Kerala Students Union (KSU).
Mohammed Shammas and Ann Sebastian have been appointed as the new vice presidents of the students union. The appointments were approved by Congress president Mallikarjun Kharge.
A reshuffle in KSU was deemed necessary after KM Abhijith stepped down as president. He has been appointed as the NSUI national general secretary.
Opposition Leader VD Satheesan backed Aloshious Xavier in the KSU election.
Aloshious Xavier was the former union chairman of Sacred Heart College, Thevara.
The 29-year-old leader was appointed to the post after the party relaxed the age limit of 27 years. Strong criticism was also raised in the KSU against the subversion of the age limit.
