ABVP asks Karnataka govt to address students’ woes

Prime News, Karnataka, Education, Students, Mysuru, October 23:- Many problems and issues have cropped up in the education field due to the Covid-19 pandemic since last year. Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishat (ABVP) staged a protest in front of the Mysuru Deputy Commissioner’s office in Mysuru on Friday (October 22) to draw the attention of the government.

Protesters said, “High school and PU Colleges across the state have reopened but many problems still persist. Students in remote areas are unable to attend the classes due to change in class timings and also due to the non-availability of transportation facilities. This problem must be addressed on a priority basis.”

They said, “The scholarship amount for Scheduled Tribe (ST), Scheduled Caste (SC) and Other Backward Castes (OBCs) and minority students studying in engineering, diploma and other courses are not given in full. This problem should also be looked into. The scholarship amount needs to be hiked to encourage more and more students.”

They added, “Many underprivileged and talented students from rural areas are dependent on hostel facilities for their stay. Though the classes have already begun, the hostel selection process is yet to be finished. Hostel rooms should be constructed according to the number of students and given to all the students who have applied for the facility.”
