KRV stages protests demanding implementation of Mahishi report

In the city of Belagavi, activists from the Karnataka Rakshana Vedike (KRV) staged a protest on Monday, appealing for the implementation of the Sarojini Mahishi Report to increase job opportunities for Kannadigas within Karnataka’s government, private, and public sector organizations. Protesters, who began at Rani Channamma Circle and ended at the deputy commissioner’s office, conducted a sit-in demonstration, urging the state government to promptly implement the revised report of Sarojini Mahishi.

Deepak Gudaganatti, president of the KRV district unit, emphasized the need for Kannadigas to receive priority employment in the state and for the Kannada Development Authority to be granted more power to effectively enact laws framed during the tenure of former chief minister Ramakrishna Hegde. Mahadev Talwar, the state coordinator of KRV, proposed that anyone who has resided in Karnataka for 15 years should be classified as a Kannadiga. He also suggested organizing a Kannada writing test for new recruits and revoking the recognition of organizations that violate employment rules for Kannadigas, as well as repossessing land provided to such companies by the government.

KRV leaders Suresh Gavannavar, Ganesh Rokhade, and Satish Gudadavar participated in the protest, standing in solidarity with the cause. Meanwhile, recent articles published mentioned the following topics:
