Dalit Pragati Pantha organises Kannada Nudi Yatre

He was speaking after inaugurating Kannada Nudi Yatre in front of Kuvempu Institute for Kannada Studies at Manasagangotri organised by Dalit Pragati Pantha here on Wednesday.

“It is a meaningful move to organise this yatra, emphasising on the fact that everyone living here, irrespective of their mother tongue, should learn Kannada. This jatha was very necessary and has to be organised all over the state,” he said.

Although it has been over 55 years since Karnataka was born, the objective of the ‘state’ was never fulfilled. Kannada and Kannadigas are in a state of anxiety. If this continues, Kannada will be in danger in future with non-Kannadigas turning into some sort of an Island. Hence, this event gains significance,” he observed.

Allaying fears pertaining to Kannada, pro-Kannada activist Pa Mallesh said Kannada will be safeguarded and kept alive by people living in villages. “Every government in the past has ignored Kannada. Hence, Kannadigas have to fight with solidarity.

Kannada Nudi Yatre has to reach every household,” he said. Talakad Nagaraj of Dalita Pragati Pantha said the yatre was an ‘intellectual’ one which was organised to celebrate Kannada and its richness. An awareness would be created among people about the government’s duty towards Kannada, he added.
