I strongly propose and humbly request CM Yogi to kindly consider the construction of a hostel for undergraduate, postgraduate, and PhD students of UP in Delhi or in Noida. The demands were well received by the CM and assurance was extended to the effect that the land titled under UP government will be utilised for construction of hostels and further directed the university administration to come up with a proposal.” said Shakti Singh, President, Delhi University Students Union.
