Mangalore, Sep 4: As part of the nationwide call for college bandh given by Akhila Bharathiya Vidyarthi Parishad, students of all colleges stayed away from classes and took part in protest and rallies urging for immediate resignation of Prime Minister Manmohan Singh over the coal block allocation scam.
Students of various colleges in the city gathered at the Bunts hostel circle and blocked the road by forming a human chain to express their anger over the UPA government. The students allowed traffic to resume after a 10-minute road block.
Addressing the gathering, Ramesh K, state secretary of ABVP said that though the country is marred by neck deep corruption, PM Manmohan Singh has helplessly chosen to be silent. "The central government should be dissolved and election should be conducted. Manmohan Singh should resign from the PM's post," he demanded.
Students shouted slogans and expressed their anger over corruption in coal block allocation, aviation, Tatra trucks, 2G spectrum, Commonwealth Games among others.

Kundapur, Sep 4: Students led by members of Akhila Bharathiya Vidhyarthi Parishad (ABVP) staged a protest against corruption of UPA government here on Tuesday September 4.
"Today corruption has become inevitable. Corruption is seen in almost every corner of our country. Almost every person has dipped himself into this sinful act. The saying ‘As you sow, so shall you reap’ is almost violated everywhere," they said.
"Money paves the way for all sorts of luxuries to lead a comfortable life. The world encourages one to be shameless and enjoy. No one realizes the suffering and pain of another. ‘Honesty is the best policy’ has become an old and outdated saying today," they said.
All colleges in the city were shut as a part of the protest. Students of Bhandakar's College protested near Koteshwar and Kundapur Shastri Circle.
The protest was staged against coal scam, Tatra truck scam, 2g spectrum scam, Commonwealth games, IPL 20-20, and black money in Swiss bank.
