1,000 students to be trained to sing 'Negilayogi' today

 Informing this to media persons here on Friday, State Organic Farming Mission Chairman Dr Anand A S said the government is planning this programme in all district headquarters through the Kannada and Culture Department.

“The singers have volunteered to train all students across the State in singing the song, after they get the training. About 1.5 lakh students will be singing Negilayogi simultaneously on August 15 which will be a historical occasion,” he said.

Congratulating the government for its decision to dedicate the song to the farmers of the State, Dr Anand said it reaffirms the government’s commitment towards farmers.

 “It was the Organic Farming Mission that moved the proposal before the government first under its ‘Jeevabhava Jagattu’ programme. The Mission feels that the song is going to exhibit the inner strength of the agriculture-based country,” Dr Anand said.

Asked whether the song is going to provide any solution to the grave problems being faced by the farmer community, Anand said the song will be giving confidence to the farmers to come of their grievances.

“The responsibility of solving the farmers’ problems lies on everybody. Government alone can’t do anything. Instilling confidence among the farmers is just one step forward in this direction. There are numerous examples where songs led to unity and revolution,” he said.

Joint Director of Agriculture Padmaiah Naik, members of the Mission Srivatsa, Arun and B K Ramesh were present at the press meet.
