As the admissions in Delhi University are in full swing, the Chief Minister of Delhi Arvind Kejriwal has slammed the University over the issue of poor quota for the local students. As the admission season has started and students from all over the country are trying their best to secure a seat in one of the colleges of Delhi University, Arvind Kejriwal has put his point in front saying that the admission process is not fair for the Delhi students.
He seems to have used microblogging site for communicating his message. He has highlighted this issue on Twitter. He said, “ Delhi University admission system is most bizarre. The do not have either quota for locals or normalization of marks or entrance test.”
He wants to throw light on the issue that because of not having quotas for the locals and not having any entrance test, a lot of problems are faced by the students and the parents. They try their best but are not able to secure admission in the colleges of DU.
It has not happened for the first time, in the past also, Aam Admi Party has raised the issue saying that Delhi University should give importance to the locals of Delhi. They feel that that future of a lot of students is at stake because of this. In the month of June, Deputy CM Manish Sisodia also mentioned about the same issue on Twitter. He requested the HRD Minister Smriti Irani to allow 5% relaxation in the admission of the students in Delhi University. He once again has reignited the students of Delhi for a debate on the ongoing admissions. He has also asked the HRD Ministry for a separate entrance test for the students.
Supporting him, former Delhi BJP Chief Vijay Goel said also said that an entrance exam should be considered. He said, “I met DU Vice-Chancellor and requested him to bring quota for local students and conduct eligibility test for admissions. I also called on Manish Sisodia and the HRD minister and am confident that the talk would go in the right direction.”
Though the former BJP Chief did support him, but the current BJP does not support this. They said that this kind of demand reflects his petty mindset and regional attitude. They said that if AAP does not support brilliant students coming and studying in Delhi, then they should not consider going out too.
