Rashmi Samant, who was elected President of Oxford University Students Union on 13 February, has resigned from her post. Rashmi has resigned following controversy over some comments on her social media account. Samantha is doing her MSc on the power system from the college bordering Oxford University.
Stated to be racist and insensitive
Questions are being raised about some old social media posts of Rashmi. In this post, he was called racist and insensitive. To avoid disputes, he has decided to step down. In the election held earlier this week, he had a spectacular victory by securing 1,966 votes out of 3,708 votes.
Rashmi became the first Bhatwanshi who became the President
The Oxford University Students’ Union was elected last week. Rashmi won a grand victory by securing 1,966 votes out of 3,708 votes. She was the first Indian-origin student elected to this position. In an open letter published in the students ‘news paper’ Cherwell ‘, Samant said,’ I sincerely apologize to every student who has been hurt by my post or comment. He said in a statement on Facebook that it would be best for me to step down from this role after the recent events surrounding my election for Oxford Students Union.
