Delhi University’s PG men’s hostel has sent a two-page notice to Indian National Congress party leader Rahul Gandhi for his “sudden” visit to the facility last week. The provost of the hostel, K P Singh, stated that the visit amounts to trespass and irresponsible behaviour and is beyond the dignity of a leader of a national party who has Z-plus security. The note has asked the Congress leader to cease and desist from taking such steps in the future. Gandhi’s unexpected entry into the premises along with three vehicles violated the prescribed rules of the hostel. The management committee of the hostel has unanimously decided and resolved that such conduct from a leader of a National Party who has Z-plus security is beyond dignity. The hostel is governed by the University of Delhi Act, 1922, and its statutes, ordinances, regulations and its own ‘Rules of Residence’, ‘Rules regarding Dining Hall’ and ‘Guests’ for the smooth functioning and welfare of its resident students’ and for maintaining proper discipline. The administration of the hostel reserves the right to stop any activity which goes against the prescribed rules.
