Dharna on Friday

Staff Reporter

BANGALORE: Pro-Kannada organisations, led by the Kannada Sahitya Parishat, will stage a dharna on January 11 to protest against the rules for recruitment for Group “D” posts in the South Western Railway.

These rules do not favour Kannadigas and are biased towards people from other parts of the country, the organisations alleged. At a discussion held on Tuesday by the parishat, noted critic L.S. Seshagiri Rao said that a legal recourse should be explored in the next two days for any possible relief.
