Rai University duped us, allege students

By Our Staff reporter

NEW DELHI, APRIL 7. Accusing Rai University of "duping" students and demanding a "regular" degree, students of Rai University along with members of the Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) staged a road block at ITO on Bahadurshah Zafar Marg on Wednesday, causing a traffic jam lasting almost an hour. With traffic coming to a halt at the busy intersection, police used force to remove the agitating students from the road. "We had no other option because our voices are not being heard either by Rai University or the Government. The future of thousands of students is currently at stake and unless a quick decision is taken on the issue, we will lose out on important years," said a student.

Although Rai University had last month announced that it had finally received an affiliation from the government-run Pandit Ravi Shankar Shukla University in Raipur, students say the University is yet to show them an official notification.

Students are further questioning why despite the Indraprastha University showing keen interest in giving affiliation under certain conditions, the University decided to go for the Pandit Ravi Shankar Shukla University. In a letter dated March 18, the Indraprastha University had stated that in the interest of the students it would agree to expedite the consideration of the proposal if received "duly completed in all respects by Marh 31".

It had, however, clarified that the institution would have to abide by the fee structure notified by the University and follow the courses of study as formulated by the University.

Demanding to know why their University decided to turn down the proposal, the agitated students today asked for Government intervention in the matter.
