BJB college students block road in Odisha capital after poll cancellation

Bhubaneswar: Students of BJB Autonomous College in Odisha capital today resorted to road blockade and demonstration in front of the college by burning tyres as students’ union poll was cancelled and the college was declared sine die yesterday.

The roadblock reportedly disrupted vehicular movement near Kalpana Square here.

Some students were seen replacing the ‘B’ letter from the name of the college on the maingate with letter ‘D’ making it visible as ‘BJD Autonomous College’.

Though the college authorities had earlier decided to hold the polls, it was later decided to cancel it and declare the college sine die last night.

On the other hand, students have been asked to vacate hostels by today evening.

Notably, bombs were hurled near ladies hostel of the college on Thursday evening leading to tension in the campus.
