Addressing a press conference, she said Kejriwal has worked to transform the trans-Yamuna area into an education hub.

"I want to congratulate the people of east Delhi. They are going to get a gift from Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and Sisodia. Students from the east Delhi area will get 21st century employment opportunities with the opening of the campus," she added. Like other state-run universities, this campus will also have 85 per cent of its seats reserved for students from Delhi.
