  1. Guyz ,,,,

    Did you note a point here,,,,,,

    The M E S n its Chela’s opposed the honouring function to the great Dnyaanapeetha avardee shri Kambar ji,,,, that too in his home town n home district… hense they got screwed,,, the BCC disposed twice,,,

    and today the same person Mr Kambaraji is been honoured for his great achievements in Belgaum (His Home town) by the President of INDIA,,,, That would be really a proud moment,,,,

    and thats power of KARNATAKA n KANNADA people ,,,
    Now some one may comment here,,, but its our VICTORY ….. 🙂


    • Absolutely right.The(MES) people do not have any other job,than apposing Kannada people,kannada culture,Kannada events, just for political reasons and creating differences among the people of belgaum.
      Its a great moment for all Kannadiga’s ,to witness all the above mentioned events.Congradulations and all the best for the events.:)

    • we saw other day the strength of Kannada activist in recent Karnatak Bandh in Belgaum, Some 10-15 people carrying out the so-called-protest march at PROTEST CIRCLE (Sorry I mean to say Chennamma Circle) & most importantly with Police protection. I think this time the pro-Kannada organization didn’t export protestor from other city/town down from karnataka to shown their Strength in Belgaum. Even for this Suvarna Soudha opening you might need to call crowd from Kittur, Dharwad, Hubli, davangree etc.
