Now, Arvind Kejriwal slams Delhi University over poor quota for local students

Kejriwal took to Twitter on Thursday to highlight his concerns about poor quota in DU for local students.

Attempting to strike a chord with students from Delhi and surrounding areas, Kejriwal sought to highlight the problem of locals failing to secure admission in DU and its affiliated colleges every year.

The ruling Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) had in past advocated that the Delhi University, which falls under the ambit of the Delhi government, should give primacy to local students in securing admissions.

With so much at stake, senior AAP leader and Deputy CM Manish Sisodia had taken to Twitter in June in which he asked then HRD Minister Smriti Irani for a 5% relaxation in Delhi University admissions.
