Bangalore, Oct 1: The Tamil Nadu Government after demanding Cauvery water is now demanding a assembly seat in the Karnataka Assembly. To protect the interests of Tamilians in Karnataka, some of the Tamil organisations are demanding an assembly seat in Karnataka. With the upcoming Assembly elections in Karnataka, Tamilians are eyeing a place in the Karnataka Assembly also. Atleast 5 Tamilians should take a place in the assembly and we should strive for the same, was agreed upon in the Tamil Sangha All member meeting that lasted for two months.
We got to know about this development very late, said Kannada Sangha, ex-Vice-President of KGF, A G Gurushantappa. Not only do the Tamilians want a place in the Assembly, but they are demanding for a sure win of Tamil candidates in the BBMP elections also. This an attempt by the Tamil Government to agitate the Kannadigas, states Gurushantappa.
Message from the Tamilians
Tamil Sangha of Bangalore to change over to Karnataka Tamil Sangha. During the Cauvery and Hogenakal controversy, there was no protection for Tamilians in Karnataka. Hence Tamilians should have the control over the Karnataka also.
From past 58 years, Tamilians in Karnataka have not received any recognition and to receive such a recognition, politics is the only way. We need a change in our organisation.
