Fr Mathew Vas, Correspondent of St Mary’s Special School, Kinnigoli and  Chief Parish Priest of Kinnigoli Church inaugurated the protest  and urged the government to   respond positively to the demands of the special school teachers who are serving the differently abled children.

The  Special school teachers also took out a jatha from  Hampankatta to the Mini Vidhana Saudha.
