June 7, 2018

Mysuru:  There are very few Chief Ministers like D. Devaraja Urs. No one has been able to give the administration like him so far, said Dr. D. Thimmaiah, former Director, Health and Family Welfare Department.

He was speaking at the 36th death anniversary of D. Devaraja Urs organised by Urasu Jagriti Academy at the District Kannada Sahitya Parishat premises here yesterday and said that Urs would always say that the Dalits, Minorities and the poor belonged to his caste. However, today caste politics play a dominant role and it should go. People’s leaders like Devaraja Urs are the need of the hour, he added.

Former Forest Department Secretary and Devaraja Urs Bidiruvana Organisation President A.C. Lakshmana said that along with social concern, Devaraja Urs also had great concern for environment.

District Kannada Sahitya Parishat President Dr. Y.D. Rajanna, Sandhya Suraksha Trust President B.R. Nataraj Jois, District Sharana Sahitya Parishat President M. Chandrashekar and Urasu Jagriti Academy President Dr. M.G.R. Urs  were present on the occasion.
