Bangalore, Oct 23 (UNI) Karnataka Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa today sought an appointment with Prime Minister to discuss matters like giving classical status to Kannada and amendment to Article 371 for providing special status to backward Hyderabad-Karnataka region.
In a letter addressed to the Prime Minister, copy of which was released to the media here, the Chief Minister said he would be leading a delegation of Legislators and MPs from the State as the centre had turned a deaf ear to the requests of the BJP government.
Alleging that the Centre had been showing step motherly attitude towards Karnataka, Mr Yeddyurappa said, "We want to meet you once again and convince you of the urgent need to fulfill these demands without further delay." In the letter the Chief Minister said he had repeatedly requested the centre to heed to the two demands but to no anvil.
