Berhampur, July 18 (LocalWire): Several girls from the government-run College of Nursing here joined their compatriots demanding hostel facilities for boys on the second day of the agitation today. The nursing (boys) students are protesting since yesterday for hostel accomodation.
The Sub-Collector (Berhampur), Digant Rout, tried to convince the protesting students by assuring them of discussing their demands with the higher authorities on Wednesday evening but the agitators stood firm on their stand.
‘Although the directorate of nursing, Odisha clearly mentioned that the newly-constructed building was meant for Boys’ Hostel of College Nursing, Berhampur, the principal said the building would be used for other purposes,’ said Kedar Nath
Behera, one of the agitating students.
Principal Rajalaxmi Mishra said the newly constructed building would be utilized for the academic block and alternative arrangement was being made for boys’ hostel.
