Shivamogga: The Akhila Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) held a protest and marched to the Deputy Commissioner’s office demanding free bus passes to all students in Shivamogga on June 4. They also submitted a memorandum to DC.
The protesters said that the earlier governments had provided free bus pass to reduce the financial burden on the students. The ABVP members also threatened to go on a statewide strike if their demands were not met.
They also clarified that they were just demanding the fulfillment of the promises made by the coalition government in the state in their election manifesto. “Time has come to implement the promises,” an ABVP member said.
They also demanded proper connectivity between rural areas and cities so that students from the rural areas could easily travel to cities. They also alleged that education had transformed into a business as the private colleges were demanding huge donations. “Commercialisation of education has made it unaffordable for many students,” they alleged.
