Sunil Kumar told the Central Minister that higher research in the institute was possible only if it is autonomous. Dharmendra Pradhan assured to discuss the matter with the authorities concerned.

The Union Minister assured Sunil Kumar and Pratap Simha that he would soon visit the Institute of Classical Kannada Research and understand its activities.
So , when Moustached Basavraja Bommai failed to meet PM Modi and Amit Shah, because they did not want to waste their time in meeting this weak dim witted CM of Karnataka, this culture minister wanted to show some achievement for the large waste of tax payers money spent on travel and accommodation, and met this central education minister to ask him to consider an autonomous state for this institute. This could have been done with a phone call and an invitation for this central minister to visit the institute. Oh, you see there the opportunist Simha, who is hell bent in destroying Mysore city by actively planning Hassan-Kodagu-Kerala highway, encouraging Rope Way for the Hill lobbying Basavaja Bommai, and others.
What a bunch ofpoliticalvillains!
