Bengaluru: The final rites of renowned Kannada writer and literary critic Prof. Chandrashekar Patil would be held with full police honours, Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai said.

Speaking to media people, he said, “Our Chandrashekhar Patil, widely known as Champa, has left us.” His writings with independent thought were sharp. He used to hold a mirror to the system through his insightful presentation of the issues.

Bommai said that Champa had served as the All India Kannada Sahitya Parishat and was honoured with the Rajyotsava award, and recalled that the writer had a close association with his family. “He was close to my father. Champa, who was a guide for me, has left us. It is a big loss for the literary world.”

Bommai prayed to the almighty to give strength to the family and followers of Champa to bear this loss.

The state government has decided to conduct his final rites with full police honours, Bommai said.
