Mysuru, June 24:- Bahujana Vidyarthi Sangha (BVS) staged protest urging the state government to provide free bus pass to students of all communities hailing from poor families on Friday.
They welcomed the decision of the government to provide free bus pass. They opposed the government not providing the benefit to the poor students of all communities and called it as divide and rule policy by the Congress party in the name of caste. If the government really wants to support dalits, let them fill the backlogs and increase the food allowance at hostels, the protesters urged.
They carried out a protest march from Hullahalli circle to tahsildar office and handed over the request letter to Basavaraj H Chigari. Geekalli Revanth, Mahadevaswamy, Sundaresh, Srinivas Murthy, Venkatesh, Lokesh and others were present. (SN)
