ABVP holds yajna to demand Four Year Undergraduate Programme rollback

Monday, 16 June 2014 - 10:49pm IST | Agency: PTI

Continuing its protest for the rollback of the controversial Four Year Undergraduate Programme (FYUP), ABVP members today held a 'Buddhi Shuddhi yajna' in the Delhi University.

Praying for "sanity" for the DU Vice-Chancellor Dinesh Singh, the Akhil Bhartiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) members reiterated their demand to scrap the FYUP. The yajna was held outside the arts faculty department of the north campus in Delhi.

Even as protests are on against the programme ever since its inception last academic year, over 2.75 lakh applications, both online and offline, have been received for the next academic session of FYUP.
University Grants Commission, the statutory organisation charged with coordination, determination and maintenance of standards of university education, had recently asked DU to review the programme.
A meeting of the university's academic council is scheduled on June 21 to discuss the intricacies of the programme that would not include its "roll-back", an official said.
