DTU students take protest online

Students launch website and blog to voice protests against DCE renaming


Jasleen Kaur | April 2, 2010

Delhi Technological University (DTU) students have now taken their protest online. Second year students of DTU have launched a website called www.savedce.in. Students say that the website will help them to take their protest to another level. Along with the website students have also started a blog.

Praveen Kumar, a student says, “This website will help us to convince people that our protest has been peaceful and our demands are also right.”

The website consists of the demands of the students, the replies of various RTI that were filed by teachers and details of various media coverage that they got.

Students have been continuously demanding for the conversion of DTU back into Delhi College of Engineering (DCE), by holding protests since March 4th. They are also demanding the removal of the DTU Vice Chancellor P.B Sharma. They say that despite knocking all the doors they have got no response from the authorities.

Students also say that this will help them to get support from their own parent. Kumar adds, “The strength of our college is around 3000 but not all parents are allowing students to participate in the protest.”

The students during their protest have also boycotted the re-scheduled mid semester exam.
