Manish Tewari criticizes NDA regime over FYUP

New Delhi, June 23 (ANI): Congress leader Manish Tewari on Monday criticized the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) led National Democratic Alliance (NDA) government for playing with the lives of students aspiring for admission to Delhi University (DU) because of the Four year Under Graduate Programme (FYUP). Condemning the University Grants Commission (UGC's) decision to go back to the three year undergraduate course, Tewari demanded answers from the UGC and Delhi University for implementing the FYUP in the first place. On Sunday, the University Grants Commission (UGC) put up three separate notices for Delhi University, the colleges under it and students and parents, saying that the four-year undergraduate programme has been scrapped. It ordered colleges to admit students for the three-year course instead of the four-year undergraduate programme (FYUP) which had been introduced last year. Jun 23, 2014
