President of Adima cultural organisation and thinker Kotaganahalli Ramaiah will preside over the sammelan which will be held for two days.

However, the usual pomp and gaiety associated with sahitya sammelanas is missing this time.

Except for Coronation Road in front of the school, no other road has been decorated for the mega event. Even the school building, where the literary bigwigs of the district will discuss the state of Kannada language in the district, has not been painted. Cleaning of the surrounding has also not been taken up.

No holiday

It is a norm to declare holiday to schools when Kannada literary meets are held in districts to enable the schoolchildren to take part in the meet. However, on the first day on Saturday no holiday has been declared robbing the students of an opportunity to witness the literary meet.

Deputy Commissioner Manoj Kumar Meena will hoist the national flag at 9 am as part of the sammelana and TMC President Chandra Reddy will hoist the State flag.

A grand procession of Bhuvaneshwari statue will be taken out on the streets of Bangarpet with various art troupes. Zilla Panchayat President Manjula Venkatesh will inaugurate the procession. Superintendents of Police Dr K Tyagarajan and Devajyoti Ray, TMC President Dayanand, Vice President Bhaktavatsalam, Taluk Panchayat President Teja, Deputy Director of Education Department H D Govindaiah, Tahsildar Nagaraj, President of Kannada Sangha Pallamani and others will take part as chief guests.

District incharge minister A Narayanaswamy will inaugurate the event in the afternoon. Bangarpet legislator M Narayanaswamy will welcome the gathering. MLA Y Sampangi will inaugurate the exhibition organised as part of the sammelana.

Legislators Dr S R Leela and S N Krishnaiah Setty will release the sovenirs ‘Gokunte’ and ‘Janapda Suggi’ respectively.

A seminar on the problems being faced by the district will be held in the afternoon. Legislator V R Sudarshan will speak on agriculture, water and power and Y Narayanaswamy will speak on education. Dr B G Ranganath of Urs University will present a paper on health.
