They said the authorities failed to renovate their classrooms and washrooms from the past two years. Girl students complained that the washrooms were in a bad condition and they had to use the faculty toilets. Same is the condition of the classrooms, where ventilation is not proper and ceiling fans are also old due to which the students feel suffocated while attending the classes.
Other problems included the sanitation and waterworks and hygiene and maintenance of canteen.
Leading the protest, SOI member Piyush said, “The students protesting are all students of UIET only and protesting for genuine demands.
The condition of the department is really pathetic and even after several reminders the administration was not responsive. So we had to come forth.”

“The students deserve a chance to get their credits completed do we are protesting so their demands are listened.”
The department authorities have asked students to wait for a day and that their demands would be considered and fulfilled accordingly.
