Protest against increase in hostel mess bill

Students of various hostels attached to the University of Mysore (UoM) staged a protest to condemn the increase in mess bill.

Hundreds of students staged a protest in front of Crawford Hall in the city on Monday under the All India Democratic Youth Organisation (AIDYO) banner and alleged that the UoM has increased the fee to Rs 1700 from Rs 1300. Agitators said that most of the students in the university come from rural areas and poor background and this move will overburden them.

Later, the UoM authorities, giving into the demand by the striking students, withdrew the fee hike.
