Visually impaired students' fast enters fourth day

HYDERABAD Oct. 31. The hunger strike by over 600 visually impaired students in protest against the misuse of reservation posts meant for them, entered the fourth day on Thursday despite intervention of officials.

The agitating students alleged that the Assistant Commissioner, Disabled Welfare, Z.V. Prasada Rao, did not respond to their problems though he visited the hunger strike camp at Dilsukhnagar.

They said Mr. Rao flatly refused to accept their demands while urging them to call of the strike. They wanted the Chief Minister, N. Chandrababu Naidu, to intervene in the matter and do justice to them.
