Mumbai: On 2nd November 2020, GB Pant Engineering College students protested outside the Vikas Sadan in North Delhi against the non-inclusion of the college in the counselling process for admission this year. The admission process was carried out by Guru Gobind Singh Indraprastha University.
Around 60 students gathered in order to protest against this non-inclusion. They are demanding that the admission process shall continue and the students should be admitted this year. In March 2019, the Delhi Cabinet had sanctioned the construction of an integrated campus of GB Pant Engineering College and Polytechnic at Okhla Industrial Estate.
However, there was no official announcement regarding the non- inclusion of the college in the counselling process for admission. The students were adamant to meet Chief Minister, Arvind Kejriwal, or Deputy Chief Minister, Manish Sisodiya. The police tried to call off the protest but took no action against them.
In the memorandum of demands, the students said that the Admission procedure of GBPEC should be continued and GBPEC should admit students this year. We consulted our principal on the issue who claimed that he was not informed officially by any means and was not consulted for the same. Anything that the government has planned for the future of GBPEC, it should be shared with the college administration and students both in a written format.
Eventually, they disbursed after they were persuaded by the police officials.
