Mysuru: The All India Democratic Youth Organisation (AIDYO), in association with All India Mahila Samskrutika Sanghatane (AIMSS) and All India Democratic Students Organisation (AIDSO) has given a call to all educational institutions in the State to observe a bandh on July 21 urging the coalition Government to issue free bus pass for students.
AIDYO District President Harish said that CM H.D. Kumaraswamy (HDK) had stated in the Budget that free bus pass for students which was implemented by the previous Congress Government will be continued. But the new Government has failed to do so and is delaying to issue free pass to students. Hence, a State-wide bandh had been called, he said.
AIDSO District Secretary Chandrakala said the Government’s statement that free bus pass to students will lead to financial burden to Transport Department is misleading.
