Amid raised slogans seeking the newly elected BJP government to roll back FYUP as promised in their manifesto, an AISA member criticized FYUP saying, ” The time isn’t the real concern, but the subjects are. The teachers aren’t trained well to be able to teach these subjects. At places, Political science teachers are expected to be teaching Mathematics related courses.”
The representatives of AISA are of the view that the second time elected Padma Shri awardee Vice Chancellor Prof.  Dinesh Singh has not been able to justify neither the introduction of FYUP nor as to why it is a better structure.
The AISA has been previously involved in making endeavors to facilitate the roll back of FYUP. It conducted a referendum  dated August 22nd, 2013, wherein more than 90 percent of Delhi University students had voted against the motion of four year under graduation, foundation courses and the idea of multiple exits.

The new BJP government at centre has given everyone high hopes of promising change courtesy the Achche din aane waale hain slogans. It’ll be interesting to see if Delhi University students too, get their share of happiness from the supposed revolutionary government.
