Students protest closure of road leading to Kuloor High School

Students protest closure of road leading to Kuloor High School

Local people, including students, blocked traffic on the national highway in Mangalore for an hour to force the authorities to make the road leading to Kuloor High School motorable.

Construction work on the Kuloor overbridge is forcing people to travel through not-so-wide and dangerous route to reach the school and church on the hill top.

“The request made to authorities has seen no positive response so far. Therefore we had no choice, but take to the streets to demand justice along with the school children,” said parish priest Father Herald D’Souza.

He said that the authorities have been given a week’s time to make the road usable again failing which “we would resort to demonstration again.”

Headmistress of the school C Agnes Fernandes, local BJP leaders Sharat, Yogish Kuloor and Hameed Kuloor were also among the demonstrators.
