We’ve seen students complaining all across the university against the misbehaviour of other students during festival times like holi. As a result, it creates an atmosphere of unease and apprehension in and outside the campus.
In order to prevent this, the authorities of Delhi University has asked students to refrain from playing Holi in an objectionable manner with wet colours, balloons or pistons in any of its educational territory and decided to set up control rooms in both north and south campus to receive complaints from students during the festival. The university in its advisory council said anti-ragging and anti-eve-teasing provisions would be applicable in case students are found to be harassed during the festival on March 21.
“The principals, head of the departments and Provost of halls and hostels may form committees of teachers, students and karamchari’s to prevent the entry of outsiders into the colleges and departments. Security guards should be posted at the gates to check the identity cards of visitors and students,” the University said.
“Control rooms will be operated by Delhi Police and DTC authorities and the university officials at North and South Campus would function to deal with any untoward incident”, the University said. All anti-ragging and anti-eve-teasing provisions would be made applicable in case of harassment caused to any student during the period, it added.
“All are requested to desist from playing of Holi in a rowdy manner and with wet colours/balloons/pistons in any educational institution. Entry to colleges/ departments/centres/halls/hostels would be regulated through identity cards during the festival days,” the advisory mentioned.
