Bangalore University Will Hand Over Its 11 Hostels To Department Of Social Welfare

Persistent hostel problems and ongoing strikes and protests by hostel inmates against hostel reforms imposed by the newly appointed warden have forced the Bangalore University to take a tough stand. The university syndicate has decided to end the matter by handing over its 11 hostels to the state Department of Social Welfare. The wardens appointed by the varsity will be withdrawn and the social welfare department’s staff will soon take over.
