Convention resolves to demand Rs 1 lakh for taluk literary meet


The state government has not earmarked Rs one lakh towards taluk Sahithya sammelan in its budget. The resolution also urged the government to provide sites to those martyrs who have laid down their lives while protecting the country’s border.

Owing to the unseasonal rains, coffee and paddy growers have incurred huge loss in the district. In this background, the government should create a revolving fund to protect the interest of the growers in the district. The state budget has not made any mention of the fund for protecting the lives of the growers, the resolution informed.

The Gonikoppa Gram Panchayat should be upgraded to Town Panchayat. It was also decided to constitute a district-level committee for the implementation of the resolutions taken at the taluk level sammelan.

Gonikoppa is situated on the border of Kodagu district. Hence, a Gadi Bhavana should be constructed for organising cultural programmes. The resolutions were read out by Taluk KSP Honourary Secretary B S Devar.
