Minister of Skill Development and Entrepreneurship Dharmendra Pradhan will also be present as the guest of honor. PM Modi shared this update on his Twitter handle, expressing his excitement about joining the centenary celebrations and congratulating the DU fraternity on this significant milestone.
According to PTI, news agency reports, certain DU colleges have issued guidelines ahead of the live telecast of PM Modi's speech. These guidelines include compulsory attendance for students and teachers, a dress code that excludes black attire during the telecast, and suspension of classes between 10 am to noon. On the contrary, many other DU colleges have clarified that only students and professors are invited to the valedictory function, and attendance is not mandatory. The DU administration has made arrangements for a live telecast of the event for those unable to attend in person.
Throughout the year, Delhi University has organized numerous events and projects to celebrate its centenary. These include the establishment of new hostels and structures, the introduction of new courses, documenting the university's history, as well as light and sound performances.
