By Pti

Berhampur (Odisha), June 15, 2015: Khallikote Junior College campus in Odisha's Ganjam district may shift to neighbouring Jagannathpur.

A six-acre-land has been identified for construction of the new campus of the institute, said MLA (Berhampur) R Ch Chyaupatnaik here today.

An amount of Rs 10 crore has been sanctioned under the Rashtriya Ucchatar Shiksha Abhiyan (RUSA).

While Rs 5 crore would be spent on the construction of the academic building of the college, another Rs 5 crores would be spent for the hostel, he said.

All India Democratic Students' Organization (DSO), Ganjam district unit strongly opposed the government's decision.

In protest, DSO supporters recently staged a dharana in front of the college.

"If the college is shifted, not only will the academic atmosphere of the institute suffer, students will also face a communication problem.

We are opposed to the government's move," said DSO's district secretary S S Mishra.

Khallikote Junior College is functioning from the Khallikote Autonomous College building after the government separated it from the degree college in 2007.

As the building has no sufficient rooms to conduct the classes for 3,000-odd students of the institute, most of the theory and practical classes were held in the Khallikote Autonomous College.

The college has all three streams arts, science and commerce.
