On this teachers argued that since these colleges constitute the Delhi University there can be no such rule as reservation can be provided to the colleges which are affiliated with the university. If the amendment is passed, universities other than DU will also be able to give affiliation to other colleges. Supporting the move, MLAs pledged to raise the issue with the Centre, the Lieutenant Governor and the university administration. "The money of tax payers from Delhi is being used to fund these colleges... the House hereby resolves that 85 per cent seats should be reserved for students from Delhi, in the colleges that are funded by the Delhi government", the resolution said.
Adopting the resolution, the Assembly said that for all future recruitments - whether for permanent teachers or guest teachers - preference must be given to candidates graduating from universities in Delhi.
Nandita Narain, President of DUTA and Federation of Central Universities' Teachers' Associations (FEDCUTA) said, "Delhi University is a central university with an all-India character, that caters to students from across the country".
The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP)-dominated assembly passed the resolution urged citizens to "uphold the Constitution in letter and spirit and not fall for vicious and divisive propaganda".
Mr. Sisodia added that the reservation would apply to women who had got married and moved to Delhi, but had graduated from elsewhere. The Delhi University Teachers' Association (DUTA) passed a unanimous resolution on Friday to oppose the proposal.

However, during the first cut-off admissions, a section of the students and parents had alleged that some colleges denied admission even after verification of certificates.
Speaking at the Assembly, Sirsa said, "This is an important issue and all MLAs should demand reservation for city students cutting across their political and ideological differences".
The House also passed another resolution to request the central government to amend sub-section 2 of section 5 of the Delhi University Act, 1922, which prohibits another state university to have affiliated colleges of its own.
