Delhi University’s VC Yogesh Tyagi has appealed to the teaching and non teaching staff of the varsity to contribute to PM CARES FUND to support the Nation’s battle against the Coronavirus Crisis.
The Varsity also started an initiative called “DU care for neighbour” to feed the hungry and the marginalised section of the society.
“We have come to realize that we are in the midst of the biggest battle that human civilization has fought in recent centuries. Life as we know has come to a standstill. There has been an unprecedented increase in the number of have-nots in every part of the world,” said Vice Chancellor Yogesh Tyagi in his emotional appeal to his colleagues.
The “DU care for neighbour” was started in April by both North and South Campuses to feed the hungry and the migrant workers of the area.
VC also appealed to the Alumni Association to contribute to PM CARES FUND and also put efforts to serve the in whatever form and from wherever they can.
It is noteworthy that the cases of Coronavirus just crossed 1 lakh and India surpassed China in the total number of cases. Also the ongoing lockdown is harming the economy to a greater extent which may result in Economic Depression.
