Roll Back FYUP at Delhi University #PresidentMustIntervene

    1. Mallika Taneja
    2. Petition by

      Mallika Taneja


The university is being viewed as a machine for generating job-ready graduates, without due emphasis on education as development of critical thinking. The Four Year Undergraduate Programme is being imposed in a thoroughly undemocratic fashion. Contrary to the claims made by the Vice Chancellor of Delhi University, this move is not in the interest of students and the university is not equipped to infrastructurally undertake a shift of this degree. We urge Hon'ble President Mr. Pranab Mukherjee, who is also the Visitor of Delhi University, to intervene and stop this hasty implementation of the FYUP. We invite everyone to join us and sign this petition, even those who are non alumni.

      As Delhi University 'rushes' with its proposed 4 year programme, around 4,000 alumni and eminent intellectuals petition the President of India to get the FYUP stalled. Here's the brief debate if the university used consensus or coercion to implement the course...


    2. Delhi Police detains protesters

      3rd June. 6 pm. India Gate. Delhi Police snatches placards from peaceful protesters, disrupts the peaceful candle light demonstration, manhandles protesters, throws them into DTC busses and takes them away to the Parliament Street police station. At the station, one policeman tells us that India Gate was under Section 144 from the previous night. What is this government afraid of that it needs to prevent all forms of dissent? When there is no place for a peaceful demonstration in a democracy, there is real trouble.
      SHAME on this government. SHAME.

      SHare this petition. Spread the word. Lets go to 10,000 I say!
