The Janata Dal (Secular), JD-S, which is committed to the welfare of State farmers, will give top priority to solve problems of mango growers here, said former chief minister H D Kumaraswamy.

Speaking at the Kannada Rajyotsava programme organised in the City on Friday, Kumaraswamy said that it was saddening that mango-growers of Srinivaspur, who export good quality mangoes to international markets, are mired in problems.

Reiterating his party’s commitment to State farmers, he said: “If the JD(S) is voted to power in the upcoming Assembly elections in the State, it will set up a mango processing unit to help the farmers,” he said.

In addition to this, the party will also lay thrust on giving guidance to farmers who incur losses due to bad crop patterns. Also, more emphasis will be laid on scientific crop cultivation, he said.

On language and culture

Noting that rural areas were the true protectors of Kannada language and culture, JD(S) State unit president said that he was happy to feel the love for Kannada language in border villages of Kolar district.

The celebration of Kannada Rajyotsava in a meaningful manner should, thus, be emulated by others in the State, he said.

Legislator G K Venkatesha Reddy who spoke on the occasion said that Kannada programmes organised in border areas of the district facilitated in the development of the Kannada language.

Continuing the tradition, pro-Kannada organisations should hold more such programmes to boost the language and culture in these regions, he said. Both H D Kumaraswamy and G K Venkatesha Reddy were felicitated on the occasion.

Celebration


The idol of goddess Bhuvaneshwari was taken out in procession in main streets in Srinivaspur. Dollu Kunitha, Pata Kunitha, Keelu Kudure Kunitha and Garudi Gombe Kunitha artistes added colour and vibrancy to the procession.

Tableau by Venkateshwara Rural Health Education Association depicting the problems of irrigation was a great draw.
