An official said the students had put forth the demands for better amenities, use of laptop in hostels and increasing of visitors’ hours.
Demands related to the administration were accepted while that of giving priority to students in government colleges during MRB exams would be taken to Chief Minister’s notice after considering the legal aspects.
