The Chief guest then addressed the students and spoke about the importance of the day and gave a brief history of kannada language. He also urged the students to respect Kannada language, that one must try to save kannada language. ” While CM Siddaramaiah has said, “Everyone who lives here is a Kannadiga. Whoever lives in Karnataka should learn Kannada and make their children learn it too- we should make it a point to learn Kannada and speak it fluently . But if you don’t learn Kannada, it means you’re showing disrespect to the language,” added the chief guest.
It may be noted that Karnataka Rajyotsava, which is celebrated on November 1 every year, marks the day when all the Kannada language-speaking regions in South India merged to form the state of Karnataka. The Vice Principal Roshan DSouza and the Training officer Romius D’Souza were present on the dais during the programme.
