TRV to Remember Fighters of ‘Free Tulunadu Struggle 1837’

Mangaluru: Tulunadu Rakshana Vedike (TRV) held a press meet at Hotel Woodlands here, on April 1.

Addressing the media persons, President of TRV, Yogish Shetty Jeppu said, “Before the freedom struggle of 1857, the people of Tulunadu had also taken part in a similar struggle in 1837. On April 5, 1837, the people of the Tulunadu region had driven out the British from this region and declared Tulunadu as independent by raising the flag of Tulunadu on Bautagudde. They reigned and breathed in a free region for 16 days after which they were taken as captives by the British and hanged at Bikarnakatte and their bodies left to rot.”

“With the writings of several historians we have a record of these incidents. Some of the leaders like Kedembadi Ramegowda and Kalyanappa were participated in the struggle,” he added.

He further said, “It is a pity that we have failed to honour them, whereas people in North India stand up for their heroes by naming places of importance after them. With the intention of remembering our fallen heroes, we have organised a rally from Jyothi Circle to Bautagudde, where we will hoist the flag of Tulunadu again under the leadership of Harikrishna Punarooru on April 5.”

About 1000 people are expected to participate in this rally along with several eminent personalities from the literary, cultural and entertainment industry.
