Piyush Aryan, a student of DU’s Delhi School of Journalism, has written to the Ministry of Education, requesting to reopen the college.
Piyush Aryan wrote, “Our online classes have been going on since November ’20 and now it has become very difficult for us to get online education. I am unable to enhance my skills through online classes. Please reopen the college So that I can be a part of the offline class once again. ” At present, more than 10 thousand tweets have been made on Twitter under the #Reopendelhiuniversity to appeal for the return of Delhi University.
