Student bodies protest against FYUP outside VC residence

June 26, 2014 15:53 IST

Continuing their protest against the controversial four-year undergraduate programme in Delhi University, members of various student bodies on Thursday held demonstrations outside the residence of the vice-chancellor, demanding immediate rollback of Four Year Undergraduate Programme.

The protesters raised slogans against the VC and demanded immediate rollback of the FYUP. Members of one Krantikari Yuva Sanghtan also burnt the effigy of the VC.

"DelhiUniversity's VC is playing with the future of students. University should immediately scrap FYUP and start admission process under the three-year undergraduate programme," ABVP's national secretary Rohit Chahal said.

Holding placards, the students also shouted slogans against the DelhiUniversity's administration. "We will not accept FYUP at any cost because it is not according to our national education policy," Suresh, member of Indian National Students' Organisation, said.

As several students groups -- Indian National Students' Organisation, INSO, National Students' Union of India and Krantikari YUVA Sangathan -- gathered outside Singh's residence, police tightened security and erected barricades and diverted traffic to another road.
