    Kannada medium schools in the district have been doing Kannada implementation in an appreciable manner, said Kannada Development Authority chairperson Prof S G Siddaramaiah.

    “The implementation has been carried out by running the schools in spite of lack of student strength, maintenance of libraries and conducting Kannada programmes,” he said.

    Siddaramaiah was chairing the review meeting at the deputy commissioner’s office in connection with Kannada implementation. The Department of Public Instruction of Kodagu has used novel measures, which are examples for other districts, said the chairperson. He said that he will go on a tour of the district and visit Kannada schools in this regard during the reopening.

    Many new programmes have been mentioned in the report submitted by the Department of Public Instruction. Even though 114 schools are running short of students, the schools are being run.

    Malliswamy, acting deputy director of the Department, said that the students of 12 schools that were closed, have not got admitted to private schools, but have joined the nearby government schools.

    Siddaramaiah said that the block education officers should carry out sudden visits to schools to assess the quality of Kannada teaching. Kannada should be introduced as the first or the second language in CBSE schools as per the government circulars.

    “The website of the Kodagu district administration is in Kannada. The website is designed using Unicode. Other districts should follow the same. The nameplates and notifications of government departments in the state should be in Kannada,” Siddaramaiah suggested.

    Kannada Sahitya Parishat district unit president Lokesh Sagar that Malayalam nameplates dominate in Virajpet, Kutta and Makutta regions. Discussions related to Kannada language are taken up in the last part of Zilla Panchayat meetings. The Authority chairperson directed Deputy Commissioner Richard Vincent D’Souza to take action in this regard.

    “Only 550 Kannadigas are employed in the 138 industries of the district. Instead, 100% of C and D grade jobs should be given to Kannadigas, while 50% and 80% of reservation should be provided in A and B grade jobs,” he said.

    Superintendent of Police P Rajendra Prasad and Authority secretary Muralidhar were present.
