The letter, posted on the official Twitter handle of Kejriwal, said: “For the sake of our youth, I urge the Honourable PM to personally intervene and cancel the final year examinations of DU and other central government universities and save the future of students.”

Mentioning the UGC’s July 6 order, mandating the final year examinations and extending the examination period till September-end, Kejriwal said the latest UGC guidelines have disappointed both the students and their parents.

He said that in the extra ordinary situation created due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the governments will have to take extra ordinary measures and make people’s lives easier and reduce their problems.

He said that many state universities have cancelled the examinations and given provisional degrees to students. However, the central universities have not done the same, including the DU, and this decision must be taken by the central government.

He said that UGC has asked the universities to conduct online exams, which is not feasible and must be taken back.

He said that even the IIT and NLU have awarded degrees to their students on the basis of internal assessment, then why cannot other universities follow suit.
