GULBARGA: Members of the Veerashaiva Yuva and Vidyarthi Vedike continued their agitation here for the second day on Friday seeking ministerial berths to the legislators from the Lingayat community in the Hyderabad-Karnataka region.

Dharna

The members led by the vedike president, Mallikarjun Gorur, staged a dharna in the city on Thursday.

They took out a procession in the city on Friday from near the statue of Basaveshwara near Jagat Circle to Sardar Vallabhai Patel Chowk raising slogans in support of their demands.

The members of the vedike said that the Bharatiya Janata Party, which came to power in the State for the first time with the support of the Lingayat voters, had neglected the interests of the community in the formation of the Ministry.
