A special session of the Karnataka legislative assembly will begin in Belgaum today and at the session Karnataka Chief Minister Kumaraswamy is expected to push his pro-Kannada stand further in the matter of Kannada being the medium of instruction in primary schools.

Karnataka Chief Minister HD Kumaraswamy, in the centre of the controversy over his government’s decision to push Kannada as the medium of instruction at the cost of forcing the closure of over 1400 schools.

Earlier the Chief Minister as a fitting inheritor of the son of the soil legacy of his father former Prime Minister HD Deve Gowda has shown that he would go to extreme lengths to boost the status of Karnataka and even resorting to negative remarks on neighbouring states.

“While Chennai is prone to Tsunamis and LTTE worries, Andhra Pradesh has Naxalite and infrastructure problem,” said Karnataka Chief Minister HD Kumaraswamy.

And a master stroke — the decision to move all Karnataka MLAs and MLCs to Belgaum for a five-day assembly session, the first time it’s being held out of Bangalore’s Vidhan Soudha. The move comes as nothing short of Karnataka’s proclamation to neighbouring Maharashtra and the Centre, that it will not allow its territorial integrity to be breached.

“The Belgaum session will send out the message loud and clear that Karnataka’s border will not be allowed to be used by politicians of neighbouring states to achieve their personal ends,” said Kumaraswamy.

Whether it is turning the BMIC project controversy from being one allegedly involving personal interests, to an issue of protecting farmer’s interests. Kumaraswamy has always played the Kannada card to perfection. And Monday’s rally will undoubtedly be another perfect example.
