Teachers and students opposed to Delhi University’s four-year under-graduate course protested outside the Central Secretariat Metro Station here on Friday to educate passers-by on the disadvantages of the new course to be introduced in June. It was the second stop in their campaign to take the fight outside the university.
The ‘Save Delhi University Campaign’ is a signature campaign that the teachers and students started on Monday from the Vishwavidyalaya Metro Station. They intend to target popular metro stations all across the city and will be there at Dilli Haat on Sunday.
“Under the banner of ‘Save Delhi University Campaign’, we want to take the opposition to the four-year under-graduate course into the public domain. We displayed placards, distributed leaflets in Hindi and English while we interacted with passers-by explaining the issues,” said Miranda House teacher Abha Dev Habib, adding that in a matter of two hours, 841 signatures were collected on the petition.
As part of the campaign, a dedicated website has been launched (http://4yrdu.com/) which will host critiques of the four-year under-graduate course comprising reports from teachers, news reports and talk shows. It will also announce various action programmes of the campaign. There is also an online petition addressed to the Prime Minister.
