Nayagarh: Campus poll at Nayagarh Autonomous College, another leading college of Odisha, was cancelled for this year and closed sine die following student unrest on Friday.
The college’s authority took the decision as two student groups fought a pitched battle on the premises of the educational institution.
Police forces have been deployed on the college premises to main law and order.
Meanwhile, students of SCS Autonomous College in Puri are on hunger strike in front of the college gate protesting against the authority’s decision to scrap students’ union poll this year.
Two students were hospitalised as their condition deteriorated.
Total 23 students of the college had filed nominations for the campus poll. But, the papers of 10 poll aspirants were rejected leading to disturbances on the college campus. The college authority decided to cancel the campus poll and the educational institution was closed sine die.
