Aong with ST students, AISF representatives staged a dharna in front of the District Tribal Welfare Office in Nizamabad on Thursday.
Speaking on the occasion, Raghuram said there was no drinking water in the hostels and the students were forced to bath three times a week due to water scarcity.
Alleging that food is not being served as per the menu, Raghuram said that students are often falling sick due to lack of basic facilities.
