Delhi University’s Proctor Prof Rajni Abbi, Dean Students Welfare Pankaj Arora and Registrar Vikas Gupta spoke to the officials of DUSU and announced the opening of the campus from February 17.
In the name of DUSU President, the university has given a letter to open the campus in writing and has issued necessary guidelines.
In its written assurance, Delhi University has said to start offline classes from February 17. From February 17, all libraries, laboratories and other centers of Delhi University will be opened for offline practice.
It is worth noting that Delhi Disaster Management Committee i.e. DDMA Last week, the guidelines were issued for opening school colleges in Delhi.
Students have resolved to sit on indefinite dharna outside the VC office
Even after these guidelines, DU did not open the university to the students. In protest against this, the students have resolved to sit on an indefinite dharna outside the VC office.
The protesting students said that the sit-in will continue till the VC gives a written assurance to reopen the DU without any delay. Earlier, the SFI and other student organizations tried to enter the DU VC by climbing the walls despite heavy police resistance.
The SFI also locked the VC’s gate.
Angry students also took out a rally demanding the reopening of the campus
The rally started from Patel Chest in Delhi University and was later stopped by the police in front of the Arts Faculty.
A large number of students were present in the rally and were marching ahead with slogans to open the campus. Shreya, a student associated with the student organization, said that despite the continuously falling corona cases and the DDMA’s instructions to open schools, colleges, Delhi University has to has been kept closed.
A large number of students from all over the country take education in DU. The students were the most affected due to the corona epidemic spreading in the country for the last two years.
Students said that where offices, public transport, shopping complexes, malls, etc. have been opened today by removing all kinds of restrictions, educational institutions have been kept closed till now.
In fact, it is the intention of the government that the more students are kept away from the classroom and campus, the more it will be easier for the government to implement anti-student policies.
In view of this protest of the students, now it has been decided to start offline examinations in Delhi University.
Offline examinations will be started for all students from February 17.
