Lukewarm response to Yuvajanotsava

Chikmagalur:Nov 29, 2012 DH News Service

ZP chief attributes it to lack of publicity and negligence of officials

 The district-level Yuvajanotsava, organised at Kuvempu Kalamandira on Wednesday, received a lukewarm response, with a very few youth organisations participating in the programmes.

Only a few artistes had turned up for the programme. District-in-Charge Minister D N Jeevaraj, who was upset over the poor response for the programme asked the Youth Service and Sports Department official whether he had to really attend the programme.

If the minister expressed disappointment over lack of youth participation in the Yuvajanotsava, Zilla Panchayat President Rekha Huliyappa Gowda said that the programme was rather “dull.”

   It is unfortunate that the youth are not interested in  taking part in the programme that is organised in the district headquarters.


Addressing the small crowd, the minister said that it was disappointing to see the youth of this generation not keen on participating in the programmes organised by the Youth Service and Sports Department. Youth must participate in these programmes as they help to improve their learning and understanding abilities.

Inaugurating the programme,  Rekha Huliyappa Gowda said that lack of publicity and negligence of the officers were the reason behind poor response.

“The district has over 600 youth organisations, including Nehru Kendras. If the officers had better co-ordination by conducting preparatory meetings, the programme would have been a success,” Zilla Panchayat President  said.

 Further, she pointed at the lethargic attitude of the officers and lack of time sense in the youth too as the reasons for the failure of the programme. The youth should develop the sense of national integration, advised the ZP President.

Taluk Panchayat President Basavaraj, ZP Chief Executive Officer Shivshankar and others were present.
