Youth to operate pahani-issuing centres

By Our Correspondent

CHIKMAGALUR, FEB. 1. The Minister for Revenue, M.P. Prakash, has said that 2,000 unemployed youth in the State will be permitted to operate computerised pahani-issuing centres under the Bhoomi scheme.

Inaugurating Kumaravyasa Jayanti programme organised by Sri Veeranarayana Swamy Trust in Yagati in Kadur taluk on Sunday, Mr. Prakash said preference would be given to those who owned computers. Talks had been held with banks to provide loan on easy terms, he added. Extolling the life and works of the poet Kumaravyasa, he said Indians had learnt the art of recording events from the British. He said the past could not be changed but lessons could be learnt from history.

Comparing Kumaravyasa to the social reformer Basaveswara, he said the poet's works still appeal to the common man. He released "Itihasadalli Yagati'' written by Y.S. Shivaswamy.

K.M. Krishnamurthy, MLA, presided over the programme. Y.S.V. Datta, Janata Dal(S) spokesperson, who hails from Yagati, said the descendents of Kumaravyasa lived in Yagati. Narahalli Balasubramanya, literary critic, spoke.
