‘Pressure Centre to give classical language tag to Kannada’ Call to pressure the Centre to accord classical language status to Kannada

 

 

 

MYSORE: Leaders of various Kannada organisations have decided to hold demonstrations outside the houses of all the Members of Parliament (MPs) from Karnataka to force them to bring pressure on the Union Government to accord classical language status to Kannada soon.

Leaders of various Kannada organisations held a meeting under the aegis of Kannada Shastriya Sthanamana Horata Samithi headed by Kannada writer D. Javare Gowda in Mysore. They took exception to the failure of the MPs from Karnataka for not doing enough to secure classical language status for Kannada.

Writer Lingadevaru Halemane said: “The Centre has not taken our demand seriously. Since our protests are not yielding the desired results, we must put political pressure now.”

Kannada writers recalled the repeated assurances given by Union Minister of State for Planning M.V. Rajashekaran on classical language tag for Kannada, but said “nothing was coming out of it”.

Awareness rallies

Dr. Javare Gowda emphasised the need for taking out rallies to create awareness among people on the benefits if Kannada secured the classical language tag. A host of Kannada personalities including C.P. Krishnakumar and Akbar Ali, besides president of Mysore district Kannada Sahitya Parishat Manasa and leaders of various Kannada organisations participated in the meeting.
