The Master’s students of Mathematics Department of Delhi University went on a hunger strike when 35 out of 40 students failed in the semester examination followed by the alleged ignorance of their complaints by Vice-Chancellor Yogesh Tyagi. The protest had been taking place since 14th February 2019.
“When we have been continuously trying to interact with the administration, they are not bothered. We have been demanding re-evaluation by an independent judge committee and action against those responsible.” a student was quoted as saying.
“As I was busy I had asked the proctor and the dean of the social welfare to meet the students. But they never turned up. If they had come we would have done something” DU registrar T K Das was quoted as saying.
