    In the wake of panic among students of northeastern states in the country over some developments there in the region, M S University (MSU) has convened a meeting to take stock of the situation on the campus. The university will reach out to 400 students that include not only students from the region in India, but also Tibetans. A meeting of wardens and top university officials was called by vice-chancellor Yogesh Singh to review the situation regarding students form northeast (NE) enrolled in the university. The officials have been asked to keep a close tab on any developments regarding these students and exercise vigil.

    Singh will hold another meeting on Sunday evening at 6 pm at his bungalow where he has called not only MSU officials, but also students from northeastern states as well as Tibet. MSU officer on special duty ( registrar) Amit Dholakia said police officers may also be called for the meeting.

    “We want to assure the students that they are safe here and in case of any problems, the university will stand by them. There is no reason to panic and so far there are no reports of any exodus of students studying at the university,” Dholakia said. He said the university was also reaching out to Tibetan students as they could be confused with people from NE.
