“Death is imminent and I will die for the sake of Kannada,” declared noted writer and former Vice Chancellor of University of Mysore Prof D Jaware Gowda, who held a dawn-to-dusk hunger strike in this regard, in Mysore on Wednesday.

The octogenarian Prof Gowda also said that he will continue his struggle until the Classical Language statue is accorded to Kannada.

He had held a similar hunger protest a couple of months ago in front of Deputy Commissioner’s office. He chose Suvarna Karnataka Rajyotsava Day for his protest in order to draw the attention of the government in this regard.

He was accompanied by large number of Kannada writers and friends during the protest.

No reaction

Noted writer S L Birappa, speaking to reporters, said that Congress has not reacted to reports that Centre will not accord the status to Kannada as long as JD(S)-led H D Kumaraswamy government is in power in the State.

“This in other words means that Congress has accepted it,” he stated.

He called upon all MPs from State to mount pressure on the Centre in this regard.

Earlier, Kannada Sahitya Parishat President Chandrashekara Patil said that the time has come for every one to get united and mount pressure on the Centre.

“But it is unfortunate that not many writers have expressed their support to Prof Gowda’s efforts in this regard,” he stated.

Political issue

He took a dig at Congress-led UPA government at the centre and said that it is weighing the issue politically and hence not giving the status.

“It knows very well that the credit will go to JD(S)-BJP coalition government if it is done,” he alleged.
