The Karnataka Rajya Christu Sangharsha Samiti has demanded that Bishop Taranath S. Sagar recall the principal of Vijaya Vidyalaya School T.C. Raj, and District Superintendent-cum-Pastor of the Methodist Church Paul Madhukar, who were facing serious charges of corruption, maladministration and misuse of their offices.

Members of the samiti began an indefinite hunger strike outside the Methodist Church here on Saturday.

Mr. Raj was facing charges of corruption, maladministration and harassment of women teachers, said the samiti members. They said that from the day Mr. Raj took over charge, the standard of education imparted in the school had come down and there was shortage of teachers.

The samiti accused the District Superintendent-cum-Pastor of promoting factionalism among community members.
