Delhi BJP demands Govt starts additional shifts in DU
New Delhi, June 29 (UNI) Delhi BJP President Harsh Vardhan today demanded the Government to start additional shifts in all colleges of the Delhi University to provide equal opportunities in higher education to all students.
He also asked for joint entrance examination to make the admission process impartial and transparent.
In a statement, the Delhi BJP president said a new University must be set up in Delhi so that the educational facilities can be strengthened.
Dr Harsh Vardhan said inspite of scoring 85 per cent marks, thousands of students were not able to secure admission in the college or subject they desired.
''In many famous colleges of the University, students have not been able to get admission in the subject of their choice even after securing 90 per cent marks.... Due to this they are very much frustrated,'' he said.
''Psychologists say that getting education unwillingly is a burden. If the students shall not study subjects of their choice then how shall they be helpful in the development of their family and society?'' he added.
Dr Harsh Vardhan said during the past eight years of its rule, the Congress Government in Delhi has not opened any new college.
''In the existing colleges, neither have the seats been increased nor the number of hostels. Due to this needy, students are suffering,'' he added.
