Now, Arvind Kejriwal slams Delhi University over poor quota for local students
Arvind Kejriwal took to Twitter to highlight his concerns about poor quota in DU for local students.
New Delhi: While admissions are in full swing and students from all over the country are scurrying to get themselves enrolled into prestigious institutions, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has slammed Delhi University (DU) over poor quota for locals.
Kejriwal took to Twitter on Thursday to highlight his concerns about poor quota in DU for local students.
Delhi University admission system is most bizarre. They don't have either quota for locals or normalisation of marks or entrance tests

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.
