Members of Jaya Karnataka staged a protest here on Wednesday by riding bullock carts at the KSRTC bus-stand circle against the hike in bus fares.

If the government kept increasing bus fares, people would be forced to ride on bullock carts, the protesters said.

They later took out a procession to the Deputy Commissioner’s office and submitted a memorandum demanding a roll-back.
