Moreover, the demand for giving 50% reservation to women in the student union elections in the North Campus of Delhi University has intensified. 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.
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.
