Narendra Modi likely to be chief guest at DU’s 93rd Annual Convocation


Prime Minister Narendra Modi, according to some sources, could well be the Chief Guest at Delhi University’s much delayed 93rd Annual Convocation. It will be held in the last week of November.

Earlier it was to take place in March this year, but got delayed by eight months against its usual time. DU Vice Chancellor Yogesh Tyagi said that they were waiting for the ‘confirmations’, but refused to confirm the names on the guest list.

According to The Pioneer, keeping in mind any possible changes in the PM’s schedule, DU has also sent an invitation to the HRD minister Prakash Javadekar and Vice- President Hamid Ansari, who is also the chancellor of the university.

The VC had this to say about the exact dates, “We are still exploring things about the convocation… mainly the date. The first and mid-week of November is not possible but we are juggling between November 19 to 22.”

Known for its grand celebratory appeal, the DU Convocation ceremony had President Pranab Mukherjee as the chief guest in 2013 while lieutenant Governor Najeeb Jung graced the ceremony in 2014.
