Mysuru: Urging the State Government to extend free bus pass facility to students of all classes as provided to SC/ST students, the activists of National Students Union of India (NSUI) staged a protest in front of the DC’s office here on Saturday.
Lauding the State Government for providing free bus pass facility to SC/ST students, the protesters urged the Government to extend the facility to students of all classes and also to rural students.
