The students were urged to tell the world the truth about the repressions that Tibetans have experienced since the Chinese invasion of Tibet.

Prof K.R Venugopal, Bengaluru University Vice Chancellor announced that the institute earlier affiliated to the University of Mysuru will hence forth be affiliated to the University of Bangalore and will provide Ph.D degrees in the coming years.
