He told a delegation, which met him in Bangalore on Wednesday, that the hobli centre would be upgraded and a special tahsildar would be appointed soon. The delegation demanding taluk tag for Kushalnagar had been led by MLA M P Appachuranjan.

“The government will soon form a Cabinet Sub-Committee in connection with taluk reorganisation.

The hobli centres deserving taluk tags will be upgraded on the basis of the recommendations of the sub-committee and those of the previous committees. The proposed Cauvery taluk will also be considered,” the CM said adding that he would discuss the issue with the local MLA.

State Water Board former president K P Chandrakala drew the Chief Minister’s attention on the demand for a separate Kodagu state. However, Yeddyurappa said he was happy that majority of Kodavas had opposed the proposal.

In the meantime, he asked Special Officer V P Baligar and senior official Lakshminarayan, who were present on the occasion, to give special emphasis to the comprehensive development of Kodagu.

He assured the delegation that the government would give additional funds to the district.

MLA M P Appachuranjan, MLC S G Medappa appealed the Chief Minister to upgrade Kushalnagar that has all qualifications to become a taluk, into Cauvery taluk.

The Committee President V P Shashidhar and General Secretary R K Nagendrababu submitted a memorandum to the CM urging him to use special parameter to the Malnad area while reorganising taluks.
