Mysuru: Only 150 of the 1800 final-year postgraduate students at Manasagangothri of University of Mysuru attended classes on the first day after State government gave permission for reopening of colleges after eight months' hiatus on Tuesday. Classes of final-year degree and PG resumed.

Speaking to the Hans India, university registrar Shivappa said, "We made arrangements for Covid tests for staff and students at all the centers. On Tuesday, we arranged one camp for testing at Manasagangothri."

At Maharani's Arts and Science College only nine students turned up including Covid warriors, Jyothika and Anusha. These two final-year BSc students, who are into NCC, have been appointed by health department to collect throat swabs for Covid tests. They have collected samples of 3,000 people in the past few months.

The students who did not bring permission letters from their parents and Covid negative reports were not allowed to enter the college. The students were allowed only after thermal screening and hand sanitizing. In view of thin attendance, the teachers spent the day interacting with the students in one hall.

Meanwhile, Deputy Commissioner Rohini Sindhuri visited Maharani's Arts and Science College and checked if all the class rooms, furniture and toilets were sanitized and the staff and students were put through tests. Later, she asked the authorities to submit a report in this regard.
