Rural art not only possesses nativity but also teaches values of life. Hence it is our responsibility to preserve this art for our future generations, said Taluk Panchayat president Nanjundayya.
He was speaking at the 2016-17 Yuvajanamela, jointly organised by Department of Youth Empowerment and Sports and NSS at Yallandur’s Government PU College. He said that Chamarajanagar is traditionally rich. There are thousands of folk artistes who have been sidelined from the society. Such artistes should be brought to the limelight in order to give a boost to the folk art in our society, he said.
Zilla Panchayat member Umavathi Siddaraju inaugurated the programme and said that such programmes serve as a platform for youngsters to display their talents. Youngsters should make use of such opportunities, she said.
Town municipality president Ningaraju, vice president Bheemappa, members Nagarathna Mahesh, college principal Shriprasad, sub-registrar Rudrayya, Gopal, Basavanna, Rangaswami, Jaiguru, Shivakumar, Ravi and others were present on the occasion.
