New Delhi: Congress leader Manish Tewari Monday voiced concern over the ongoing tussle between Delhi University (DU) and the UGC, saying "egoism" was at play in the whole issue.

"It seems to me an issue of egoism," Tewari said, alluding to the University Grants Commission's diktat that Delhi University must revert to the three-year undergraduate courses by Monday.

"Eventually, students' careers are at stake. The controversy would also have implications on the reputation of the institute," Tewari said here.

He added: "It is not the way in which the HRD (Human Resource Development) ministry and the UGC must be dealing with an autonomous university."

The UGC Sunday ordered the Delhi University that it should allow admissions for the undergraduate courses only under the three-year programme, which was prevalent prior to the introduction of the four-year undergraduate programme (FYUP), or face action under the UGC Act, 1956.

As the FYUP introduced last year violates the National Education Policy 1986, which advocates the 10ưƱ system, the UGC said Delhi University must go back to the earlier system.
