Ramadevi varsity students intensify stir for 2nd campus in city

Bhubaneswar: Students of Ramadevi Women's University here today staged a protest by blocking the Vani Vihar and Master Canteen Road at Rupali Square demanding immediate selection of a second campus and continuation of autonomous status to Ramadevi College.

Earlier on Friday, the aggrieved students burnt tyres near the varsity premises and threatened to continue the protest for indefinite period to demand for a suitable land for the second campus of the institute after the Government failed to decide on the new location for the second campus.

The students are also protesting the abolition of 71 teachers' posts and 100 non-teaching staff's posts.

They are demanding continuation of the autonomous to Ramadevi College. They are also opposing the separation of Plus II and Plus III. The college has lost the autonomous status after it was upgraded to a unitary university.

Earlier, authorities assured that the site for a second campus would be decided on latest by March 15, but noting tangible has happened as yet.

The protesters threatened to intensify the strike if Government fails to take any tangible measures in selecting suitable land for the second campus.
