Tribal students block Udaipur-Ahmedabad Highway
Udaipur: Traffic on the Udaipur-Ahmedabad
National Highway remain affected for the second day with
hundreds of tribal students blocking it, demanding allotment
of seats in colleges in Rajasthan`s Dungarpur district.
The students are demanding allotment of seats for
around two thousand candidates who have been selected for B.Ed
course in the state.
Neglect to tribals by the state and union governments
have led to camping of these students on the hills of Bokhla,
Maan Singh Ninama, the divisional chief of Anusuchit Jati
Janjati Sangharsha Morch, said today.
The protesters yesterday arrived in a rally and
blocked the highway at Bokhala village, 100 kms from here.
A senior Dungarpur Administrator tried to pacify the
agitating students by informing that the state government has
sanctioned 900 seats.
However, the students demanded that all 2,000 eligible
candidates from the tribal community should get admission for
the said course.
Parleys are on to sort out an understanding between
the administration and the agitating students.
