Baramulla: Students from different educational institutions of Kupwara on Friday staged a protest demonstration against the lack of transport facility for them.
The students blocked the Lolab-Kupwara road at Putshahi for several hours and raised slogans against the administration for not improving the transport facilities, reports said.
The students said that they do not reach the schools on time and this has now affected their studies. They also said that the transporters, mostly the buses and matadors running along this route do not adhere to granting concession to the students and many discourage student commuters in their service.
The protesters later reached the DDC office Kupwara to register their protest and dispersed peacefully.
