Hubli Sports Ground Bachao Samiti which has been demanding the playground at Deshpande Nagar in Hubli be kept open to the public, will stage a one-day token dharna on Gandhi Jayanti.

In a release issued here the samiti, said since there had been no proper response from neither the State government nor the district administration, it had decided to pay tributes to the statue of Mahatma Gandhi in front of KIMS Hospital and subsequently stage a dharna from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Veteran journalist Patil Puttappa will lead the agitation.
