‚ÄúMany of these students are struggling to get admission in higher education institutions. The money of tax payers from Delhi is being used to fund these colleges. And it is our responsibility to safeguard the interest of Delhi students. We will meet the HRD minister, L-G and DU vice-chancellor to raise this demand.” said Manish Sisodia.

“This is an important issue and all MLAs should demand reservation for city students cutting across their political and ideological differences. The Delhi government can also setup a college which is only for Delhi students.” said Manjinder Sigh Sirsa,BJP MLA.

The House also adopted another resolution demanding an amendment in the Delhi University Act, 1922. Sisodia said that because of Section 5 and sub-section 2 of the Act,no other university in Delhi is legally authorized to give affiliation to any college.

Delhi University is yet to react on the so called resolution passed by Delhi Assembly during the admission process.
