Local CPI unit secretary R Viswanathan, his CPI (M) counterpart R Rajangam and ruling AINRC legislator PML Kalyanasundaram also met the team separately and presented petitions Friday seeking Centres intervention to end the student unrest.mStudents, however, continued their agitation which entered the 12th day on August 7. The relay fast launched Thursday by some students also continued.
 
 
 
 
The students are agitating since July 27, demanding removal of the vice-chancellor for alleged administrative chaos and violation of human rights. They are also demanding improvement in hostel facilities and other amenities. Pondicherry University Students Movement (PUSM), which is leading the strike said that students who had taken admission in PU on the basis of merit from distant areas have not been given hostel accommodation till now. Though the prescribed number of students to share one room is three, at the moment at least four to six students are forced to share a single room.
