Traffic disruption on Mysore-Mananthavady highway

H D Kote (Mysore dist), Sept 14, 2013, DHNS :

Students, parents stage protest against shifting of school

Students and parents of Adarsha School descended on the roads to register their protest against the ‘guddali puja’ for the construction of a new school building at Beechanahalli, in H D Kote, on Saturday.

Supported by progressive organisations, the protesters blocked the road on Mysore-Mananthavady highway near hand post circle, causing disruption in vehicular traffic for more than two hours.

One of the students Likith, studying 6th standard said that there was no vehicular facility to Beechanalli, which would pose inconvenience to the students.

Moreover, it was Beechanahalli, which got affected during Cauvery issue, every year, with hundreds of police descending on the place. He also warned that if the management was adamant about relocating the school to Beechanahalli, the students would not continue studies in the school.

They presented a memorandum to MLA Chikkamadu, who arrived on the spot. His efforts to pacify the agitators failed as they were adamant that they would not move until district-in-charge minister and DC arrived on the spot of protest.

MP R Dhruvanarayan, who was on his way to attend a groundbreaking ceremony to launch development works at a cost of Rs 4.5 crore also visited the spot and pacified the protesters.

The ceremony for the school at Beechanahalli was temporarily postponed as per the directives of District-in-charge Minister V Sreenivas Prasad.


The protesters withdrew the protest only after being assured that the school would not be shifted to Beechanahalli.
