Cuttack: Uncertainty looms large over the accommodation of MPhil and PhD scholars in the east hostel of Ravenshaw University (RU) as some inmates of the hostel continued their protest opposing their stay.
The varsity administration has refused to agree to the demands of the agitating students. Terming the protest of the hostel boarders unacceptable RU vice-chancellor Ishan Kumar Patro here on Saturday said that the research scholars can stay in any of the hostels on the varsity.
According to sources, many research scholars are staying in different hostels of the Ravenshaw University. Some research scholars have been also allowed temporary accommodation in the newly constructed hostel for post-graduate (PG) students.
While the PG hostel inmates have refrained from raising voice against the varsity’s decision agitation by the inmates of east hostel raises question against their intention behind the protest.
The fate of 84 research scholars staying in the hostels of RU now hangs in balance as the discussion between the students and the varsity officials is yet to conclude.
