Belagavi sessions on Unfulfillment of it’s Purpose on N-K Region
It’s proud moment for all Belgaumities for hosting 6th Legislature session since 2006,but many intellectuals feel that the purpose of constructing Suvarna Vidhan Souda is still incomplete, When they were asked to speak and give their views and opinions ,said all previous and present governments led by the BJP, JD(S) and congress are just fooling people of North Karnataka.
This was said by the Kannada writer and artist Chandrakant Kusnsur that the Govt. is holding these sessions and spending huge amount but this is unfortunate situation which has been brought by the Govt as the leaders of Bengaluru and Mysore regions are not in favor of development of North and Hyderabad Karnataka as they fear that people here will become powerful and start dictating terms, “he said.
According to them if the govt is really concerned about development of this region ,it should start big industries and provide jobs to unemployed.
Advocate Ravindra Totiger differed the opinion of Kusnur, he said Belagavi came to the limelight because of the SVS and Legislature sessions.”Several projects were taken up in North Karnataka.The topic on arguments on the border dispute with Maharashtra were taken in this discussion
Dr.Yamanappa Balavangol, HOD of Political Science in Rani Channamma University, said a full term session should be held in SVS. There are many issues to be discussed at the session so eight or ten days are not enough.
Dalit Leader Kallappa Hanabar said it is wrong to say that the Belagavi session has not achieved anything. Development cannot happen overnight but takes months and years.
Prof.S.M Gangadharaiah, chairman of school of Classical Kannada Studies ,RCU, urged the govt to establish a Center for Kannada Excellence in Belagavi and release grants for RCU.
“A Theme Park and Museum on Kannada culture should be established in Belagavi, he also added the session should also discuss conducting a special cultural study of border areas”.
