While the University Grants Commission (UGC) claimed that the Union Human Resource Development (HRD) Ministry had made it clear that it will not intervene in the FYUP standoff, Delhi BJP chief and Union Health Minister Harsh Vardhan on Monday said the government will take “any step required to be taken to roll back FYUP”.
On Sunday, the UGC issued several circulars to Delhi University (DU) and students to take admission in the three-year course and not to enrol in FYUP.
Earlier in the day, Union HRD Minister Smriti Irani held two meetings with UGC chairman Ved Prakash. Prakash also held a meeting with DU Vice-Chancellor Dinesh Singh.
Irani is understood to have expressed her displeasure over the delay in resolving the issue. She also said that the government should not intervene in the matter, sources said.
But Harsh Vardhan came out in open support of scrapping FYUP. He said the government had fulfilled its promise to replace FYUP with the three-year undergraduate course, a promise the party made in its election manifesto.
