Kannada development authority's plea to Kerala govt

The May 6 circular would cause hardship to students as majority of those living in Kasargod are Kannadigas, KDA Chairman 'Mukyamantri' Chandru told reporters here.

In a federal system, states have to respect all languages and Karnataka has been following this principle, he said.

It is not advisable to impose Malayalam on linguistic minorities living in Kasargod, he said.

Chandru said he would request Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa and Minister for Primary and Secondary Education Vishweshwara Hegde Kageri to write to their Kerala counterparts seeking withdrawal of the circular.
