He is fighting for the rights of the students. Thousands of people have supported him giving more strength to fight for the cause. I hope that the government considers its demand and come up with an appropriate solution."
"Swamiji and friends you have my support. I thank you on behalf of all those students you are fighting for," he added.
The Valmiki community is protesting in Bengaluru stating that the central government has set aside 7.5 percent reservation for the community, but the state government had allotted only 3 percent reservation.
