Delhi University,Dalit,Bahujan

Neighbourhood News Desk/Avi Arya: Delhi University’s standing committee for academic affairs recommended that the words such as ‘Dalit’ with ‘bahujan’ or ‘ambedkarwadi’ in all the books being taught to students who pursue post graduation in political science be replaced after some of the members found them “controversial”.

During a committee meeting, some members raised objections over the use of “Dalit” word in a course taught by political science department in the varsity.

Veenu Kukreja, head of political science department, said that she would consider the recommendations and will hold a meeting with her department faculty members.
