GULBARGA: Inmates of the Babu Jagajivan Ram Hostel here staged a rasta roko on Rajapur Road on Saturday demanding better facilities.

The inmates, led by activists of the Akhila Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishat (ABVP), disrupted traffic for some time. They alleged that toilets and bathrooms are in bad condition and their complaints to the Social Welfare Department have not been attended to so far.

The inmates said the library in the hostel should be upgraded. They complained that foodgrains supplied to the hostel are of substandard quality. They demanded that the hostel superintendent be suspended for dereliction of duty.
