KalingaTV News Network

Bhubaneswar: Hundreds of students of Vani Vihar (Utkal University) on Wednesday staged demonstration in front of the campus main gate protesting over the government’s decision to establish the second campus of Rama Devi (RD) Women’s University in Vani Vihar premises here.

The protestors blocked the main gate burning tyres, shouted slogans against the State government and flaunted placards saying ‘Stop Planning To Divide Utkal Campus’.

The tension erupted after the State government constituted a committee formed headed by the Vice-Chancellor of Utkal University to identify 30 acres of land in the existing campus of the Utkal University for recommending the allotment of land to the second campus of RD Women’s University in the state capital.

Sources said that it was earlier decided to set up the second campus of RD Women’s University in Daspur area on the outskirts of the capital city here, but the decision was later changed citing the distance and security concerns.

Currently, RD Women’s University runs in the same campus of erstwhile Rama Devi Women’s College in the city.
