'Restart genealogical study on Kodavas'

Codava National Council (CNC) members staged a protest in Madikeri on Tuesday to urge the government to restart the genealogical study of Kodavas, which has been stagnant.

The report on the study should be submitted to the centre by the end of this month, the protestors demanded.

Gathering in front of the deputy commissioner's office, the members urged the government to complete the study so that the Kodava community could be added to the list of tribes.

Council president N U Nachappa said that the demands should be considered seriously. The elected representatives should exhibit will power in fulfilling the aspirations of the Kodava community.

During Chief Minister Siddaramaiah's visit to Kodagu recently, MLC Veena Acchaiah had submitted a memorandum to him, requesting to restart the genealogical study of Kodavas, he said, and added that the study should not become an election gimmick.

A memorandum was submitted to the deputy commissioner on the occasion.

Codava National Council leaders Katumaniyanda Umesh, Pullera Kalappa and Chambanda Janat participated in the protest.
