Hunsur: The D. Devaraj Urs Government College in Hunsur town has got a facelift, thanks to the efforts of MLA H.P. Manjunath, MLC A.H. Vishwanath and other elected representatives.

The college, which is decades old, now features a student-friendly canteen, tiled floors, a pure drinking water unit and a security room. This apart, the college has its parking arena which is also floored with concrete, drainages along both sides of the road leading to the main gate of the college, a Borewell Re-charge Unit, a full-fledged park, a new class-room block, women’s hostel, a welcome arch at the college entrance and solar lights.
