Kannada Sahitya Parishat state President Manu Baligar on Saturday said that the 2017 Sahitya Sammelana will be held in the heritage city, Mysuru. In an open election, Mysuru was selected as the host district for the 2017 Kannada Sahitya Sammelana.
Many districts have come forward to host the 83rd Kannada Literary Fest in 2017. There was a pressure on the Sahitya Parishat to organise the convention in CM’s hometown and district, Mysuru. Along with Mysuru, Dharawad, Chikkamagalur, Haveri and Chikkaballapur were competing to host the convention. As the 82nd convention has been successful, there will be a competition among the districts to hold the convention, but everything will be decided according to the guidelines of the Parishat, said Manu Baligar.
