Last week, the ABVP-led Delhi University Students Union (DUSU) staged a protest against the construction of a 39-storey building in the North Campus area, mentioning it will overlook six girls hostels and will be an “invasion of their privacy”.

The high-rise building is coming up next to the Vishwavidyalaya Metro Station in the campus area.The members of the Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) gathered at the Arts Faculty and marched towards the construction site.

The students group demanded construction of new hostels at the proposed site instead of the building which, it alleged, “will take away the privacy of girl students residing in six hostels nearby”.

DUSU President Akshit Dahiya said “We will write letters to renowned Delhi University alumni enlisting their support on the issue. The DUSU will create a large movement to stop this construction as soon as possible.”
