Students, led by the local unit of the Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad, staged a demonstration outside the office of the Divisional Controller, North Eastern Karnataka Road Transport Corporation, seeking proper bus services for students from rural areas. Mahantesh Nayak, organising secretary of the city unit, said that over 200 students from Yettinabudihal, Nayakanahalli, Charakunta, Mangamma Camp and Andral villages were finding it difficult to come to schools and colleges here owing to lack of proper bus services.
