New Delhi: In what is being considered a consequence of setting inhuman standards, the prestigious Delhi University has reportedly cancelled the degree course in journalism for the academic year 2015-16 due to 100% unfilled seats.

Faking News team reached the university where they found prospect students outraged over their disqualification. Here’s how the aspiring journos reacted to this.

“Journalism has been a passion for me ever-since I started reporting to my parents the fights my brothers had with neighboring colony guys. Academically, I have neither got less than 100 percent nor more than hundred. I have applied for recounting for the third time to check if I can get 0.5% more. God only knows what’s gonna happen”, lamented the aspiring journalist Shruti.

Rachet is a wannabe journalist who achieved just 45% marks but surprisingly held his head high and was confident about getting into one or the other mainstream media houses. “Yeh to maine timepass ke liye apply kiya tha. Kya aapko lagta hai journalist banne ke liye 100.5% jaroori hai? Aarree, kuch bhi bakchodi karlo aur kaho as per sources. Din kat jayega, paghar mil jayega“, said Rachet.

Sources say this might actually be a conspiracy by DU to control the over-crowded population of journalists in India and at the same time, curb the fictional characters called sources, rising out of journalists’ intentions.
