Chennai: The BJP's Tamil Nadu unit President Pon Radhakrishnan today began a three-day 'hunger strike' demanding extension of Central government's educational scholarship to Hindu students, presently given to minorities.

Radhakrishnan had already held a series of protests in this regard, demanding that economic considerations be the criteria for awarding scholarships and not religious grounds.

Radhakrishnan was accompanied by senior leaders including Muralidhar Reddy, L Ganesan and scores of party supporters at the fast venue at Maraimalai Nagar near here.
