Students stage protest outside HRD Ministry against DU’s FYUP
Several students under the banner of All India Students’ Association (AISA) today staged a protest outside the HRD Ministry against the four-year undergraduate program (FYUP)
Protests, which went on more than an hour-and-a-half, began at 9.30 AM with a group of students raising slogans against Delhi University and demanding that FYUP be immediately rolled back.
“Delhi University Vice Chancellor is ignoring the opinion of students and teachers. Despite UGC’s directive, DU is not ready to scrap FYUP. We wll not sit silent till our demand is met,” said AISA president Sucheta De.
Several first year students belonging to various DU colleges also participated in the protest.
When senior police officials intervened in the matter, the students called off their protest.
UGC had yesterday issued directions both to DU and all 64 colleges under it to conduct admission under the three-year under-graduate programme and not under the controversial FYUP implemented by the varsity last year.
