The examination boycott is gaining momentum as coronavirus scare intensifies in Bhopal. The Rajiv Gandhi University of Bhopal had announced to conduct engineering and polytechnic exam from June 15 to July 31, but students are opposing it.

A few days ago, two hostels in the RGPV complex were converted into a quarantine centre, even then the students protested. Positive cases were being reported continuously among the suspected patients being kept here and the entire complex was becoming a corona hotspot. Due to which many students left the campus and went back to their homes.
