The demand for giving 50% reservation to women in the student union elections in the North Campus of Delhi University has intensified. Today, DU students met the Dean and the university administration and demanded at least 50% reservation in the student union elections to promote women in the student politics of the university. The university administration has given assurance to the students, so it remains to be seen whether work on this is started or not.
Recently the Women’s Reservation Bill was passed in both houses, after which it also got the approval of the President. After getting 33% reservation for women in the House, the demand for giving 50% reservation to women in student union elections has intensified. Under the leadership of Delhi University Faculty of Law student Shabana Hussain, advocate Ashu Bidhuri, advocate Ajit Kumar, and social activist Kuldeep Singh, the university students met the Dean of Delhi University.
After meeting the university administration, Shabana Hussain said that our country has completed 75 years of independence. When the whole country is celebrating Amrit Kaal Mahotsav, we do not see women anywhere in the student politics of Delhi University. It is also important for women to participate in student politics, only then the voice of every student of the university will be loud and strong. To promote women in university student politics, we need at least 50% reservation.

Shabana Hussain further said that the condition of women in the university can be gauged from the fact that girls are openly molested in Miranda House. Something similar was seen in the Diwali festival too, but students who seek votes every year in the name of politics remain silent on these issues. When elections came, they came again to ask for votes. For them, the misbehavior of women in the university is not an issue at all.
From this, it can be understood what is the situation of women in this university. If the university administration gives us 50% reservation in student politics, then at least we will stop such incidents from happening.
At present, every time the demand for 50% reserved seats for female students in Delhi University has been raised in DUSU elections, but till now it has not happened. Now once again after the completion of the DUSU elections, this demand was raised again and this time the girl students hope that the university administration will take cognizance of the memorandum given by them and will soon start work on this process.
