Priority sought for Kannada medium students

Speaking after receiving the “Nrupathunga Literary Award” instituted by the Bangalore Metropolitan Transport Corporation (BMTC), Kumar said the move would encourage students to study in Kannada medium.

“It is foolish to say that one should not study English. The two languages should complement each other”, he added.

Transport Minister R Ashoka said the transport department will soon institute fellowships to five scholars to take up research in Kannada.
