NEW DELHI: While uncertainty still looms over the admission process at the Delhi University (DU) as the University Grants Commission (UGC) and the varsity are still at loggerheads, a student wing of the BJP -- ABVP -- met Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday and expressed their unhappiness about the DU and the UGC row over controversial four-year undergraduate programme. The Prime Minister assured them that there will be prompt solution to the problem.

“Modiji met a delegation of seven members and discussed over various issues related to youth. He was also upset about the deadlock between the DU and the UGC and the problems being faced by the students and parents  and promised prompt solution,” said ABVP national secretary Rohit Chahal.

Chahal, who was part of the delegation, also said the Prime Minister discussed various grave issues related to students. He was very much concerned over more and more students consuming drugs, he was also really unhappy over the problems the Northeast students face at the colleges across the country,” he said.

The Prime Minister was also concerned and also asked the students’ views over empowering youths so that India’s representation at Olympic Games in 2020 can increase tremendously. 

The seven-member delegation included ABVP national president P Murli Manohar, national organisation secretary Sunil Ambedkar and Chahal. Meanwhile, the varsity replied to the Commission by sending it a proposal as suggested by few academicians to resolve the issue. The DU sent a letter on Thursday morning stating that the given the situation where admissions are being delayed, ‘time is the essence and hence this blended proposal may provide the necessary way forward. The commission on Wednesday night set a deadline of this (Thursday) morning for the university to roll back the controversial programme and start admission for the old three-year structure.
