October 9, 2017

Mysuru: Hundreds of students from different colleges of the city took part in the massive demonstration organised by the Akhila Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) at Ramaswamy Circle in city this morning in protest against the government’s move to close down Karnataka State Open University (KSOU).

The protestors urged the State government to press the UGC for renewal of recognition at the earliest.

After the protest, the ABVP launched a padayatra from Mysuru to Bengaluru with the theme ‘KSOU Ulisi, Unnata Shikshana Belesi.’

The padayatra, flagged off by former KSOU Vice-Chancellor Prof. N.S. Ramegowda, will pass through Srirangapatna, Mandya, Maddur, Channapatna, Ramanagar, Bidadi and  reach Bengaluru on Oct. 13.

A massive demonstration will be staged at the Freedom Park in Bengaluru on Oct. 13, from where a rally will be taken out to Vidhana Soudha.

ABVP office-bearers Swamy Marulapura, Rajesh Gurani, Rakesh and others took part in the demonstration.

    Plz start the exam and UGC recognisation as early as possible. We all students are mentally suffering.

  2. Amarnath S K says:

    It’s an open crime of UGC for punishing innocent industrious aspirant students who would have their own right dreams of future. When this is shattered the agony they suffer is inexplicable. It’s indeed wonder how NDA govt. Is silent in spite of these UGC people are mentally torturing the students who have shelled out their hard earned money and valuable time for a particular course for such a long time for their absolute no mistake.
    It is hoped that at least now the central govt. opens its eyes and punish responsible officials in UGC.
