School and college going students from Manoor Gala village of Rajouri today staged a protest against shortage of buses. A large number of students today assembled on the main road leading to Budhal from Rajouri and blocked it for vehicular movement near Manoor Gala. The agitating students stated that due to shortage of buses, they have to either board overloaded buses or reach the school and college late. "Our studies are affected. We have already brought this issue to the notice of concerned authorities but their deaf ears are not ready to listen to our grievances", a college student said on condition of anonymity.
After the road remained blocked for several hours, a team of police from Rajouri reached the spot and assured the agitating students that ARTO Rajouri has agreed to send a bus on the route as and when its service is required. After the assurance, the protest was called off.
