On Thursday, Delhi University students held a protest march around the site where a 39-storeyed building will be constructed. The site is near Vishwavidyalaya Metro station and hence in the proximity of the University campus, its colleges and hostels. The protest by Delhi University Teachers’ Association, Delhi University Students’ Union and the University administration against the construction of the building is mainly on the grounds that it will compromise the safety and privacy of the women’s hostel in the campus.

The protest unfolded as the students blocked the metro entrances and raised slogans against the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation. The attack on the DMRC was because the land where the proposed construction is to be held earlier belonged to the Ministry of Defence, then to the DMRC who has handed it over to the builder of a 39-storeyed building.

Besides, before the slogan raising at the metro station, a group of students joined together in a campaign called “solidarity through food” at North Campus. They served lithi chokha to everyone to garner more support for their cause. The organizer of the event Jaggananth Jaggu, a student of M.A. (Buddhist Studies) said positively that the campaign aims at bringing people living in the university area together to oppose the proposed construction. The attempt has proven a success as the e-rickshaw association has extended their support to the protest.

A literature student and a writer enmeshed in the politics of illusion and reality. I love writing poetry, articles, and blogs. Reading fiction and debating the non-fiction; music and food are the footholds of my self, in constant flux between real and poetic. I believe life is not invested only in the visible truth, the stone, the stars and you. There are truths in fiction, ghosts, myths, and fairies.
