K'taka mulling establishment of university for folk art

Speaking on the sidelines of a function, Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa said such an initiative would help stem the trend among youth to move towards foreign culture and tradition.

It was also imperative to preserve old art and encourage youth to take up research on folklore and other art forms, he said.

The state government, he said, was committed to preserving the state's language, art and tradition and was taking measures in this direction.
