Students from different schools here staged a protest outside the Deputy Commissioner’s office on Thursday demanding the supply of textbooks.

The students, who took out a procession under the banner of the All India Democratic Students Organisation (AIDSO), said majority of the schools had not provided textbooks. For students of class 9, the Education Department officials had not supplied even a single textbook so far, they said.

They complained that it would be difficult for them to make good the loss of two months of the academic year, because of the failure of the authorities to supply textbooks in time.
