There are numerous protests going on at present demanding the reopening of Delhi University. The protest increased rapidly after nine members of Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) went on a hunger strike on Wednesday 9 February in the North Campus.
Other activists are also continuing their protest outside the university campus with the demand that DU gets reopened.
Students mentioned that the main reason to protest is that they are facing loss in their course curriculum and the shutting down of the university is resulting in a lack of practical knowledge.
Meanwhile, on Tuesday 8 February, the DU vice-chancellor stated that the students are losing their patience therefore the reopening of the university will be considered but by keeping in mind certain important factors.
