Udupi; Jan 26: All college students ’ unions staged a protest in Udupi district in front of the clock tower near service bus stand, demanding a Mangalore University’s sub-centre in Udupi district also similar to the one in Kodagu district, wherein a separate sub-centre of University has been provided.
