Thousands of rural childcare centers staff (Aganwadi workers) in Karnataka state are holding a protest march (Padayatra) from Tumkur to Bengaluru on Tuesday, December 10, to oppose a reform on pre-primary education across the state.

A heightened security presence and associated transportation disruptions are likely along the protest route. Additional related protests cannot be ruled out.
