Students of Bhopal's Maulana Azad National Institute of Technology (MANIT) on Tuesday launched a protest against turning their institute into a quarantine facility to treat COVID-19 patients.
"College is unlikely to open on time if it is turned into a quarantine facility," said one of the students while speaking to ANI.
The students especially girls were seen holding placards with a slogan "Do not make MANIT into a quarantine centre".
One of the students vacating the hostel said, "I am a third-year student at MANIT, but I am forced to take all my things from the hostel as it is being converted into a quarantine centre and there is no surety how safe our things will be here. We are definitely against this." (ANI)
