Yet, as a minister, I cannot announce the date, as the model code of conduct is in place.”

However, MLC KT Srikantegowda, who claimed to be announcing on the behest of the minister, said that he will say it on the behest of the minister November second week. He also assured in written that the appointment letters will be given by the said duration. “We have been assured by the minister on his social media account, and by the MLC in person and in writing and trust them on their word. Hence we have temporarily called off the protest,” said a student.

While also causing an impediment towards the cleanliness of the compount,” said the official.
