Hubballi: Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai has stated that efforts are being made to offer engineering in Kannada.
As of today, 15 engineering institutes have expressed interest in teaching engineering in Kannada. He believes that teaching the topic in the Kannada language will greatly benefit the students.
He was speaking after launching a musical programme in which five lakh people across the state simultaneously sing three songs. The event was part of the week-long initiative called “Kannadakkagi Naavu” (We for Kannada) by the Ministery of Kannada and Culture here at DS Karki Kannada Bhavan in Adarsh Nagar.
He said the Kannada language will be there till the sun and the moon exists in the sky. In the new education policy also, importance has been given to teaching the Kannada language. Not only in primary or high schools, even in degree courses, learning the Kannada language has been made compulsory, a legal battle is going on regarding it, he said.
For the growth of any language, its usage is also important. It is our responsibility to ensure that other people do not neglect our language. “Mathad Mathad Kannada is a one-week campaign and we should make it successful,” said the CM.
The gathering simultaneously sang three Kannada songs: “Barisu Kannada Dimdimava”, penned by Kuvempu; “Jogada Siri Belakinalli,” written by Dr KS Nissar Ahmed, and “Huttidare Kannada Nadalli Huttabeku,” penned by Hamsalekha.
To the audience, Deputy Commissioner Nitesh Patil administered the oath of conserving Kannada language, Kannada state, Kannada legacy, culture, and promoting the Kannada language.
