DAY TO REJOICE: Agriculture Minister Bandeppa Kashempur at the Rajyotsava Day celebrations in Bidar on Wednesday.



Bidar: Survana Karnataka, the golden jubilee celebrations of the unification of the State and the annual Karnataka Rajyotsava celebrations were observed with enthusiasm across the district on Wednesday.

Music, dance and folk art performances were organised at many places. Speeches and discussions on the state of Kannada and the Kannadigas were held at some places. Some NGOs celebrated Suvarna Karnataka by distributing fruits and milk to patients in hospitals.

On Wednesday morning, school students walked through the main streets of the city. Folk dance troupes and Dollu Kunita and Kolata teams performed. Tableaux by the Department of Education and the North East Karnataka Transport Corporation added beauty to the procession. It culminated at the Nehru Stadium, the venue of Rajyotsava celebrations.

Agriculture Minister and district in-charge Bandeppa Kashempur unfurled the National Flag and inaugurated the Rajyotsava celebrations. He said the State Government was committed to the development of the language and culture of the land. He asked the officials to work hard with integrity in order to help people reap the benefits of government programmes.

The State Government was implementing promises made in the Budget. Schemes such as Bhagyalakshmi, free distribution of bicycles, Kugrama-Sugrama, subsidised bullock cart and bullock distribution to farmers and low-cost seeds, had changed the way people lived, he said.

He asked officials to create awareness about such programmes among the people.

The Nemmadi programme that aims to bring delivery of 31 services to the doorsteps of the rural poor would revolutionise the working of government offices. The programme was on in 30 hoblis now.

It would be extended to other hoblis soon, he said.

He said it was the duty of each Kannadiga to remember the contribution of Kannada activists who had fought for the unification of the State.

Among those present were Member of Parliament Narsingrao Suryavanshi, MLC Quazi Arshad Ali, Zilla Panchayat temporary president Neelkanth Rathod, City Municipal Council president Chandrashekar Patil, vice-president Vijay Lakshmi, Deputy Commissioner Munish Moudgil, Additional Superintendent of Police M.M. Daula, and zilla panchayat deputy secretary Mallikarjun Math.

The Minister presented awards to 19 achievers from various walks of life.
