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.

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.
