Haveri: Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai on Sunday January 8 said that a high-level committee made up of literary writers will be formed to advise and guide the government on the issue of undertaking in-depth research into Kannada as a classical language and related matters.
He was speaking at the valedictory function of the 86th Akhila Bharata Kannada Sahitya Sammelana. He declared that the recommendations will be implemented by the government and would provide any amount of funds for research on Kannada.
Bommai said that he has taken the harsh remarks made by meet President Doddarange Gowda on the slow research and development of Kannada sportively. “I have decided to take some initiatives. It is unfair to claim that Kannada has not received grants because the Centre has allocated Rs. 13.30 Crore for infrastructure to foster the language,” he added. Renovation work is being done on the building that Mysuru University gave to the Classical Language Research Centre.
The State’s political parties have fought together to protect the land, water, and language. Our elders have passed down this practise to us. Kannada has a promising future. The government is considering developing a course to teach Kannada to people of other states who have moved to Karnataka,” he remarked.
