Members of the Karnataka State Government Motor Driver’s Central Association have requested the State government to increase the salary of drivers attached to the Mandya outlets of the Horticultural Producers Co-operative Marketing and Processing Society.

The association members staged a protest near Nalwadi Krishnaraja Wadiyar Circle off Bangalore-Mysore highway here on Monday, and raised slogans against the State government and HOPCOMS authorities in connection with the alleged discrimination in wages.

The authorities should increase the salary of the drivers of Mandya HOPCOMS outlets, they said.
