Many students from Northeastern states who had returned to their places, during the exodus, have come back to the city and are seen attending their classes.
Rajdeep Chakraborty, a native of Guwahati, and a student at M S Ramaiah Institute of Technology, said, “We are attending classes and have also been given attendance for the days we had missed during exodus.
” Sister Elizabeth, principal, Jyothi Nivas College, said, “NE students were granted a week’s leave and all the departments have been asked to set papers for a re-examination for these students, as they missed the midsemesters exams.
” St Joseph’s (Autonomous) College of Arts and Science Principal Father Daniel Fernandes said, “We have around 700 NE students and every one has come back.
” The situation at Bishop Cotton Women’s Christian College, has returned to normalcy. “Not all of them had left during the exodus. We do not have figures to say how many actually left. They have come back,” said principal Dr Joyce Sunder.
