Seminar in celebration of Adagooru H Vishwanth’s birthday

Congress leader and former MP Adagooru H Vishwanth’s birthday was celebrated by his supporters by organising a seminar on his book ‘Halli Hakkiya Baduku Baraha.’

Karnataka Backward Class Vigilance Forum and Zilla Kannada Sahitya Par­ishat had organised the pro­gramme at the Institution of Engineers (India) auditorium here on Tuesday.

Writer Maleyuru Guruswa­my who inaugurated the seminar, said that ‘Vishwa­nath is known for his leader­ship and is a visionary. He is also known for his mid-day meal programme which is a milestone in the country.”

Writer Krishnamurthy Ha­nuru opined that Vishwanath was an open person and not someone who is in the habit of hiding things. His political perceptions are clear, and his straight forward approach has made him remain in the back­ground, otherwise he would have been a leader at the forefront. Without targeting any personalities in the party, he openly exposed irregulari­ties in the KPSC. In his literary works he quoted great per­sonalities and their writings. Such a sensitive politician is a rarity and we need persons like Vishwanth to fight against social problems.”

Expressing gratitude to all his well wishers,Vishwanath recalled his past and said, that he was inspired in his college days to join poli­tics and has always stood for ethical politics. He stat­ed that he started writing during his college days. “I wrote an article about irreg­ ularities in the sugar factory for a local newspaper and it was published. I got a good feedback from all writers, this increased my interest in literature,” he said.

“My literary works have brought about discussion which is a good sign, unfor­tunately the misunderstand­ ings about S M Krishna and the popular cine star B Sa­rojadevi has had a negative impact too. However, later Krishna understood my writ­ings and he too appreciated me and this has motivated me to write more.”

Kannada literary world is avoiding politicians saying a mix of politics and literature is not a good sign. “Literature should also focus on politics and trigger a debate on the condition of present day pol­itics. My literary work aims at projecting parliamentary be­haviour, election results and about Devaraja Urs’ steps during the emergency days.” he claimed.
