Tension is rising among the students of Delhi University due to the lockdown and they are calling for help on the helpline number issued by DU. SPK Jena, Professor of Applied Psychology at DU, says that being in solitude in a lock-down also causes stress in students and other problems, including antics.
Seeing this, DU has issued a helpline number in which DU teachers answer the students’ phones. It has been seen that the students are asking questions regarding the increasing tension due to the lockdown.
It may be noted that the Ministry of Human Resource Development has also instructed the universities of the country for counseling through the phone through UGC.
DU Vice-Chancellor said to cooperate in PM Care Fund
Vice-Chancellor of Delhi University Prof. Yogesh Kumar Tyagi has once again appealed to DU teachers to cooperate in PM Care Fu
He thanked the teachers and staff of North and South Campus and said that PM for Cares was started with their cooperation. The partial cooperation of teachers is also important in the fight against Corona.
Students and teachers now started Facebook and Twitter to raise voice against the move using “#DUwithSolutions”. It was one of the topmost 10 trends on Twitter on Wednesday.
The manner in which decisions are being taken in violation of statutory processes and disregarding the need for consultation and dialogue can only result in callous and horrendous moves, they added.
Besides, the Delhi University Students Union (DUSU), the Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) has also submitted a memorandum to the vice-chancellor opposing the idea of online examination.
The Krantikari Yuva Sanghtan (KYS) student group of School of Open Learning (SOL) has also joined the protest. About 3 lakh students, including members of the SOL and the NCWEB, are in the final year of the university.
Of them, 75 percent are outside Delhi and are against the exams, claims the AISA.
“I could not join the campaign as we have a 2G network here, but I completely support the protest. It takes time to access a social media site, even WhatsApp messages take to deliver. I missed many online classes due to the poor network. In the three-hour examination, it will take an hour for me to download the question paper,” said Radhika Agarwal, a resident of Jammu and a student of Maitereyi College.
