Delhi, April 28, 2017: In a recent press conference at Press Trust of India, assistant professor of G.B. Pant Engineering College (GBPEC) Joshil K. Abraham along with Swaraj India leader and senior advocate Prashant Bhushan allege that Delhi Government led by Arvind Kejriwal is covering up a massive corruption.
In 2007, 20 acres of land was promised by Shiela Dixit led Delhi Government to an autonomous body, Indraprastha Institute of Information Technology, Delhi (IIIT-D) and said that it will provide world-class infrastructure to the students. After an investigation, when the scam was exposed in October 2016, Arvind Kejriwal-led government decided to turn a blind eye on the issue.
It seems that Aam Admi Party (AAP), which is supposed to be the backbone of clean politics has mend its way from it. Recently, the Kejriwal-led AAP was also accused of the corruption for not making their donation list public. To raise awareness about the ongoing corruption in the party, No List No Donation campaign (Chanda Bandh Satyagraha) was launched by ex co-convenor AAP Dr Munish Kumar Raizada.

G B Pant Govt. Engineering college was established by Delhi Government in 2007 in the abandoned hostel block of G B Pant polytechnic with the promise that the new campus of the college will be built on the vacant land available with G B Pant Polytechnic for the emerging young population of Delhi.
Now 10 years have passed, G B Pant college is still running in the same abandoned hostel block of G B Pant Polytechnic. The government claimed previously that the seats in the college will be increased from 3000 to 7000. Whereas, there are only 860 students in the college and the fact also remains adamant that the currently abandoned hostel building or the entire land available on G B Pant Polytechnic campus cannot cater to the needs of 7000 students. Hence, the plan seemed too far fetched unless G B Pant Engineering College is given 150 acres of land (DTU has over 163 acres of land and hosts around 1843 students).
“We are a group of bright engineering students from G.B. Pant Government Engineering College. We are underprivileged citizens of this country, having high aspirations and potentials and we had been denied our right for a campus for the past 10 years”, said third-year student Rajeev.

Mr Joshil K Abraham never believed in hunger strikes for seeking justice. Never had he imagined in his entire life that he would start a protest for any purpose. However, he ended up taking a stand for the right of his students. Abraham now believes “if a hunger strike can yield a better world for those who are involved in this, then its worth it”.
GB Pant Engineering College which was established in 2007 under the ministry of Sheila Dixit was promised to allot a land of 60 acres but could not procure any promised benefit owing to the corruption.
Being wearied of trying every just means for the justice, he decided to take a stand against the corruption by taking an initiative. Abraham is on indefinite hunger strike since April 5 and he is nowhere close to giving up.
When questioned if he was a communist, as many Keralites are, Abraham said that what he believed most of all is in humanity and an egalitarian society.
“I grew up a believer, so much so that I was even the altar boy at my church. But when I was in the 11th standard I left the church and immediately people started asking me if I had become a communist. Despite my mother being very religious she did not question me, she said I was the same person and I had not changed in any way and that is all that mattered to her and she knew that I would not do anything if I was not completely convinced by it, so she let me be,” he explained to Edex.
Congress Vice-president Rahul Gandhi on Wednesday visited Professor Abraham of G B Pant Engineering College at AIIMS, who is on hunger strike against corruption and lack of infrastructure for students.
Professor Abraham demands 20 acres of land which will include one hostel building, one sports block, one academic block, faculty residence.
“Gandhi understood the problem and gave unconditional support of Indian National Congress to the issue. He also said that he will take up the issue with the Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal,” the students said in a statement.

“We lack basic academic facilities, hotels, auditoriums, labs, playground and sports facilities which are the basic needs for any educational institution. We are functioning in an abandoned hostel infrastructure since 2007, and the construction of the campus have not started since then”, said the final year student Shashank Mishra.
Till now they have given a memorandum to Principal, Mr Manish Sisodia and Mr Arvind Kejriwal. They have also filed an RTI’s and got the reply from them nevertheless unsatisfactory.
In a video by GB Pant Engineering College students, Sisodia was seen delivering the budget speech where he said that the capacity of the college is to be increased from 3,000 to 7,000 seats. Prof Abraham says this is a joke because there were only 860 students in the college and no commensurate infrastructure.
Abraham who sat on an indefinite fast to protest the corruption involved in land allotment, says that he was forcibly taken by the police to All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) on the tenth day but on his return, he continued the fast.
December 30, 2016: Delhi is the national capital of India and one of the largest cities in the world. It is also a massive metropolitan area in the north side of the country. Delhi carries a charm of its own and has been the glory of the country from ages. Different people have different perceptions for this city but a true Dilliite, love their city with all its quirks.
Let’s have a look how much of the Delhiite are you?
It’s difficult to identify from the way you speak
Dilliwiites have their own language. If you haven’t used words like jugaad, setting, and vella at least once, and learnt a bulk of your Punjabi from cuss words, you are not a pucca Delhiite.
Never complained about the weather
The summer in Delhi is too hot and the winter bitterly cold. The power cuts in summer are punishing and all ACs in your flat are useless. Driving in the winter is also a pain with the heavy fog and finger-numbing temperatures.
To negotiate for that little extra
Delhiites will bargain till the bitter end. Whether it is with the stall owner in Sarojini Market or with the leather merchant in Paharganj. This also extends to those aunties who will expect the street veggie vendor to throw in the dhaniya and mirchi free, even if they bought 1kg of tomatoes.
Best place for street shopping
Whether it is the bargain clothes from Sarojini and Janpath, the handicrafts from Dilli Haat or the dubious electronics from Gaffar Market and Palika Bazaar, there is something to match everyone’s taste and budget.
Never visited India Habitat Centre
It was experimental theatre where the actors jumped around on stage wailing to depict corporate oppression. You should be grateful to the dimmed lights that hid your confused expression.
Knowledge of India’s cuisine from the state bhavans and Dilli Haat
From Kasmiri yakhni to Kerala appams and Gujarati undhiyo to Bihari liiti sattu, every cuisine in the country has due representation in the city. Sunday biryani at Andhra Bhavan, or the piping hot momos at the Nagaland stall in Dilli Haat all are available.
Love for the ‘fast food’ at Nirula’s
Outlets across the city would be packed on weekends with families wanting their fix of Capsicum Mushroom footlong, Mutton Sausage pizza, or ice creams like HCF, Nutty Buddy, or 21 Love.
Attending a farmhouse party, where the host is unknown to you
Everyone knows about the real fun of ‘house party’. Just pile into a friend’s SUV with 10 others to attend the party because you know the host’s cousin’s girlfriend’s brother’s classmate.
Exciting road trips
Whether it is via the Yamuna Expressway to Agra, a trip to Jaipur for some bargain shopping, or a trip to Kasauli, with a stopover at a dhaba, you are not a true blue Delhiite if you and your friends haven’t taken one of your father’s four cars for a quick getaway.
Queuing outside Sagar Ratna
Delhiiites favourite Udipi restaurant has now sprung up everywhere. But, back in the day when there was only one outlet, you drove all the way to Def Col, took a number and waited, till the owner announced that it was your turn to eat the best dosas and vadas in the city.
Always thinking your college or school, is the best
Whether it is college or school, the battle lines are drawn. The most epic standoff is between North Campus and South Campus. All Delhiiites have bragging rights for celebrity alumni.
Visiting Delhi’s hidden architectural monuments
Everyone knows about Purana Qila, and Humayun’s Tomb, but if you known about places like Agrasen ki baoli and the Chillah Nizamuddin Aulia, which historians believe to be the residence of Delhi’s patron saint then only you are a sacha Delhiite.
Enjoying Beating Retreat ceremony
The real pomp and ceremony is at the Beating Retreat. There is that breath-stopping moment after the last strains of Abide With Me have faded and the lights come on and the audience lets out a collective sigh of amazement.
Totallyneutraltoall those protests at Jantar Mantar
Whenever something major happens in the city, you know there will be protests at Jantar Mantar. You either curse the protesters for interfering with your shopping plans or express your solidarity…after all, this is democracy at its finest.
Bragging about the Metro to an outsider
Recently Delhi Metro is named in one poll as the second-best Metro in the world; this is Delhi at its best. Clean and punctual, it almost functions like a parallel universe of the Delhi you have left above the ground.
Smiling with pride at practically every shot in Rang de Basanti
Whether you enjoyed the movie or not, but you were so chuffed at how beautiful your city looked in the movie. For that matter, you get excited at any shot of your city in any movie.
Tour to a mall
You have visited every shiny, swanky mall that dots the NCR. You may be buying in Honk Kong, but you know it’s important to be seen browsing here. You also spent two hours getting ready to come to the mall.
Trying a new-age healing trend
Whether it is vipasna, hot yoga, past-life regression, or crystal healing, you have tried or know someone who has tried to get in touch with their inner self or tried to get aligned with universal consciousness.
Riding in a cycle rickshaw in Old Delhi or Noida
In keeping with your true nature, you haggle endlessly with the cycle-rickshawala bhaiya at your destination. And ultimately you are going to give him what he asked for.
