Delhi BJP launched “Student Helpline” for DU admissions
New Delhi, June 5: In a unique initiative, the first of its kind by any political party in the Capital, the Delhi Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has launched a “Helpline” for assisting students seeking admission in Delhi University colleges.
All those who are interested in seeking any information regarding admission to the DU colleges can call at the BJP Helpline number and get the requisite information. The number at which calls can be made is – 011-30802888. The students can pose their admission queries, doubts and seek clarifications. If they ask, they will also be made complete “Admission Information Booklet for DU” prepared by the Delhi BJP recently.
“The BJP has taken these initiatives to connect with the youth. Such initiatives would go a long way in bringing the youngsters closer to our party. I strongly believe that unless we share the dreams and aspirations of young people, we cannot connect with them. That is why the Delhi BJP has taken several initiatives on this front and we would continue to come up more such innovative initiatives,” said Delhi BJP President Shri Vijay Goel.
The BJP has been distributing the Admission information booklet for DU through “Janata Adalats” held twice a week by BJP councillors. TheDelhi BJP’s youth wing, BJYM has also opened several information centres in various parts of the Capital. “We are providing Admission Information Booklets for DU admissions to parents and students in various localities,” said Shri Gaurav Khari, Delhi BJYM President.
It may be recalled that the Delhi BJP had released this admission information booklet almost 10 days before the DU started making it available. This ensured that the parents and students didn’t have to wait for the crucial information related to DU till the last moment but with information available well in advance they could take informed decisions. The Delhi BJP has also made this information booklet available on its website www.bjpdelhi.org
Meanwhile, the BJP also slammed the Delhi government for ignoring the problems faced by the youth in the Capital. More than 1,80,000 students pass out Class XII exams from Delhi schools and most of them apply for admission to DU colleges. Around another one lakh students apply for the same from other states.
Despite growing number of aspirants for admission in the DU colleges, the Delhi government has not opened even a single college during last 15 years in the DU. All 28 colleges in DU were opened by the BJP. The result of this state of inertia of Congress government is that today more than 2.5 lakh students are competing for 54000 seats in undergraduate courses in Delhi University.
“We believe that there is an urgent need to open new colleges all over the city, start evening classes in the morning colleges a and improve and extend hostel facilities to ensure that students do not have to face this unjustified pressure for admission in DU. The BJP believes in the policy of “Admission for All”. A strong political will and the right intent can make it possible. But it seems the present day government in Delhi lacks this,” said Shri Goel.
