'No Kannadigas in the State capital'


He was speaking after hoisting the flag at the celebrations organised at Sir M Visveswaraya stadium by the district administration and Kannada Rajyotsava Celebration Committee. Khan expressed his unhappiness about the ‘Nadageethe’ not being sung in various schools and colleges even though the government had issued a circular making it compulsory. He asked the concerned DDPI and BEOs to look into this issue and take necessary action.
MLC V R Sudharashan said that there was a need to introduce a law which would make it compulsory for the residents in the state to learn the language.

‘Nature belittles man’
“The mankind may have made numerous scientific discoveries, yet we are helpless before the nature’s fury. This was proved by the recent floods that wrecked the districts of North Karnataka,” remarked Legislator Dr M C Sudhakar at the Rajyotsava celebrations organised at the Jhansi stadium at Chintamani.
He said that the floods was nature’s way of punishing the mankind for their excesses. “Our elders had planned the ponds and lakes in the past. But now, we have encroached upon most of them shrinking their size and this led to the floods after the heavy rains,” Sudhakar said.

DySP Govindappa lamented that while the citizens had generously contributed to rebuild the lives of the flood victims in North Karnataka, the leaders were more involved in infighting for power.

Tahsildhar Nagaraj hoisted the Kannada flag at the celebrations.
