Hukkeri to work for taluk tag for Kittur

By Our Staff Correspondent

KITTUR (BELGAUM DIST.), OCT. 24. The Minister for Agriculture Marketing and district in charge, Prakash B. Hukkeri, gave a significant assurance to the people of the town during the valedictory function of the `Kittur Utsav' on Sunday.

"Next year, when we celebrate the Kittur Utsava, none of you will have any grievance to articulate on the problems confronting the town."

This was the promise he made while stating he would work with the legislators and others to implement the development works in the town.

He said he would try to get the taluk tag for Kittur. This has been a long pending demand of the people.

In his valedictory address, Mr. Hukkeri pointed out that serious efforts were made to upgrade Kittur into a taluk by the S.M. Krishna Government. It was about to announce the taluk tag for the town but did not do it as there were similar demands from legislators from other towns in the State. However, he promised to try his best to realise the long-pending demand of the people.

The Minister announced that the scope of Kittur Utsav would be extended and it would be organised all over the district from next year.

He thanked the officials of various departments, legislators, and volunteers for organising the festival.

The President of the Belgaum Zilla Panchayat, S.F. Doddagoudar, suggested that a television serial be made on the contribution of Rani Kittur Channamma during the freedom struggle and urged Mr. Hukkeri to look into it.
