Governor to skip event

In a letter to Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa, the Governor has thanked Yeddyurappa for requesting him to participate as a chief guest in the valedictory of the conference on March 13.

Bhardwaj said that the richness of Kannada and the contribution of Kannada literature to the literary glory of the country was unparalleled, with the highest number of Jnanapith award winners from Karnataka.

Celebrated occasion

“This is certainly an occasion to celebrate the richness of Kannada language and Karnataka’s culture. I am confident that the conference will provide an opportunity for all thinkers of the State to reflect on the State’s development and provide a vision for its all-round development in the coming years,” he said.

Meanwhile, Karnataka High Court Chief Justice, J S Khehar, has written to the Chief Minister saying he could not inaugurate the exhibition of books on Wednesday (March 9), organised as part of the Kannada conference in Belgaum, as Wednesday was a working day and he had to hold court in Bangalore.  

“I regret my inability to attend the function,” he said.
