Tanveer Sait hits back at Champa, Baragur

Mysuru: Minister for Primary and Secondary Education Tanveer Sait has expressed disappointment over criticism by the past and present Presidents of Kannada Sahitya Sammelana — Baragur Ramachandrappa and Chandrashekar Patil.

He was speaking at a technical session on ‘Kannada Samshodhane Mathu Vimarshe’ held yesterday as part of the 83rd Akhila Bharata Kannada Sahitya Sammelana being held in city.

Reacting to the appeal by Writer Chandrashekar Patil (Champa), the President of the Sammelana, to Siddharamaiah to drop him (Sait) or at least change his portfolio as he was not good enough as the Education Minister, Sait said his commitment to Kannada is unquestionable and added that he had a lot of pride in the language.

He said he had a lot of respect for Champa, but added that the latter should not have used the august forum of the Sammelana to level personal criticism against him. “I respect the right to freedom of expression. But Chief Minister Siddharamaiah would decide whether to retain me in the Cabinet or not,” he said.

“Champa has said that my attitude is not pro-Kannada. I need not learn about Kannada from anybody. I am a Kannadiga till my last breath,” he added.

President of the previous Sammelana Prof. Baragur Ramachandrappa, who is also the Chairman of the Text Book Revision Committee, had also expressed displeasure with Sait for not responding to his demand for a ‘Naada Patya’ (State syllabus).

Sait said, “I am satisfied with my achievements and contributions as Minister so far. Yesterday, I could not attend the inaugural function of the Sammelana as I was expected to be present in the Assembly Session in view of the expected tabling of a Private Bill to make it compulsory for children of government officials and employees to attend government schools.”

    An unacceptable comment by Mr.Baragur Ramachandrappa & Chandrashekhar Patil.

    I believe Mr. Sait is doing his job more than expectation when it comes to his portfolio.
    People need to understand that a minister cannot give his time or consider any individual demand.

    As Mr. Sait mentioned in his statement we need come up with ideas and discuss the matters to resolve instead of playing the blame game or destroying any individual image when he is working on something to do better for the state with great responsibility on his shoulder.

    Kannada sahithya sammelana was a great success for some people ! Champa could grind his axe against Tanveer sait! Bhagavan could insult Rama and say he was no God and doesn’t deserve a temple! Anti modi faction could read poems insulting Modi, rss and bjp! Some people could say things scornfully against upper caste people which has given them bread and butter and the luxurious lifestyle! It was a free season organized by siddu gang! Who cares about literature anyway? Fake bills Will be submitted and sanctioned and It was a Congress scheme to loot some money in the name of culture! Nothing more to expecr!

    recent saMMELANA IS siddu krupa poshita nataka mandali. . THE WAY MR.MANU BALEGAR CONDUCTED THE PROGRAM WITHOUT CALLING ROYAL FAMILY, LEELAVATI, PRO,BYRAPPAA CLEARLY SPEAKS THAT HE IS WORKING ON BEHALF OF CM. M.SIDDU AND CONGRESS PARTY.

    this manu balegar even did not involve JSS suttur sree who is doing yeomen service to kannada through his ahrama. all non relevant people called. like hd. devegowda,

    IT IS BETTER HER AFTER SUCH SAMMELANAs ARE BANNED IN THIS state as everything will be linked to congress and siddu maharaj !!!.

    MR.BALEGAR MUST ALSO BE SACKED IMMEDIATELY FROM HIS POSITION.
