Fr Praveen Martis, Principal of St Aloysius College, who addressed the protestors said  the  St Aloysius College Road should always remain as so as the over a century old institution  is one of the landmarks of the city. The decision to rename the road has hurt everyone, he added.

 

MLC and Chief Whip of State Legislative Council Ivan D’Souza, said  he being an ex-Aloysian would raise voice against the renaming of the road in the  Council.

Fr Dionysius Vaz, Rector of St Aloysius College, Anil Lobo, President of Catholic Sabha, Mangaluru  and Roy Castelino, former chairman of Konkani Academy were present among others.
