Whoever lives in Karnataka must learn Kannada: CM Siddaramaiah

Whoever lives in Karnataka must learn Kannada: CM Siddaramaiah Whoever lives in Karnataka must learn Kannada: CM Siddaramaiah

"But when it comes to the Kannada language, it's not necessary that we be so generous", said Karnataka Chief Minister Siddaramaiah, on the occasion of the 62nd Karnataka Rajyotsava at the Kanteerava Stadium in Bengaluru.

Siddaramaiah also said that everyone who lives in Karnataka is a Kannadiga. "Whoever lives in Karnataka should learn Kannada and make their children learn it too", said Siddaramaiah. "I'm not saying don't learn any other language". The festival is announced by the special address from the chief minister of Karnataka, who congratulates everyone for a good and prosperous year. They all felt this state of affairs was imposing a language on them that was not practical, and was also at the expense of Kannada, their language.

Mr Siddaramaiah said every school in the state must teach Kannada, ruing what he called a trend "to make students leave government schools and make them join English medium schools.

Let us all live together as Kannadigas", Siddaramaiah said. As far as the etymology of the name "Karnataka" is concerned, the generally accepted one is that Karnataka is derived from the Kannada words "karu" and "nadu", meaning "elevated land", referring to the elevated Deccan Plateau.

The nine-member committee was constituted after a group of people including Journalist-writer and president of Karnataka Vidyavardhaka Sangha, Dharward, Patil Puttappa and social worker Bheemappa Gundappa Gadada made a representation in this regard to the state government.

This is not the first time that the Chief Minister has batted for a pro-Kannada stance.

The Congress chief minister's comments come just months ahead of key assembly elections when PM Modi's party the BJP hopes to win back power in the only southern state it has ever ruled. These conditions kindled a movement that began as a protest against linguistic oppression, and morphed into a demand for the creation of a separate state consolidating all Kannada-speaking regions. I wrote twice to the Prime Minister myself.

Speaking on the recent notification passed by the state government, the CM assured that English will be also given priority. I've given this order.
