Delhi's Chief Minister, Arvind Kejriwal expressed his support of working on quota for the students in the various colleges of the prestigious Delhi University (DU).
His tweet came after Manish Sisodia, Deputy Chief Minister of Delhi wrote a letter on expressing his concern about the admission procedure of the University and recommended the Human Resources Development (HRD) Ministry to mull over the idea that Delhi should be given preference over the students of other states in admissions. Mr. Kejriwal tweeted: "Delhi University admission is most bizarre. They don't have either quota for locals or normalization of marks or entrance tests."
This statement in support of the Delhi students was termed as the reflection of his 'petty mindset' and 'regional attitude'. The opposition party BJP mentioned that DU is a prestigious university across the nation and its diversity and creativity is its strength and one of the reasons why it is considered as one of the top universities across the nation. Putting forward the Delhi students in admissions will definitely affect the diversity and will create obstacles to the progress of the institution and its students as well. BJP spokesperson said, "We are unable to understand their mindset when they have declared their outfit's intentions to participate in the coming elections in Punjab and other states. Clearly, this is a personal view of the AAP government. But, Mr. Kejriwal should be aware of the upcoming elections in Punjab and should not convey this type of message which can malign his image."
This reservation of quota for Delhi students has still not been finalized. The ministry will work for the benefit of the students across the nation. For updates on this issue and other news across the nation, take a halt, here at Brainbuxa.
