Mysuru, February 22:- “Sir, I am a student calling from Hunsur. Though there are many buses, they aren’t stopping at the right places. We are missing the first hour of classes every day.” This is one of the problems public shared with the Deputy Commissioner D Randeep, in a ‘Phone-in programme’ held at the Deputy Commissioner’s office on Thursday morning between 9 am and 10 am.
The public called the Deputy Commissioner on 1077 and 0821-2423800.
“There are many buses between Mangaluru and Mysuru but they don’t stop. When we wait for Hunsur-Mysuru bus and come to the college, our first class is almost over. It has become very difficult for the students,” said a student. Many students shared similar experiences.
