In their petition to the HC, they sought a recall of the interim order stating that they have moved the SLP in Supreme Court urging for a stay on it till the SLP is disposed off, said their counsel Bibhu Prasad Tripathy.
The petitioners had earlier become interveners in the High Court.
The HC last month had ordered Odisha government to transfer all the 124 students of Kalahandi Medical College to two government and three private medical colleges in the state.
In a subsequent order, the HC asked the state government to complete the transfer processes by December 23.
Accordingly, the government last week issued a notification seeking to begin the process of transfer from December 15 to end the process by the deadline set by the HC.
The HC had also asked the government to submit a compliance report on its order by December 24.
