On January 28, the students conducted classes on the street as a part of the protest about the digital divide during the pandemic. They demanded that the University must resume classes even though the Delhi University has not decided on opening the campus for everyone.
The protest that was called ‘University on Streets’ was organized by the All India Students’ Association to ask for Delhi University reopen date and as a protest against the digital divide due to online education. A few teachers also joined the students in this protest. Dr. Jitendra Meena and Dr. Laxman Yadav joined the protest where Dr. Yadav said that the system of online education has been devastating for the Adivasis, Dalits, laborers, and the women of the country.
Dr. Meena said that the BJP government was scared of free thought and protests of students and it felt comfortable in keeping their campuses closed.
A memorandum has also been submitted by one of the student groups where they have highlighted the issues faced by the students of open learning. They said that online classes are posing a problem to disabled students or those who belonged to economically weaker sections of society. Students have been eagerly waiting to know the Delhi University reopen date.
Manish Sisodia, Delhi Education Minister and the Deputy Chief Minister, has said in a statement on Friday that the diploma institutions and colleges in Delhi will be re-opening from February 5.
