The local committee of the Communist Party of India (Marxist) at Kolar Gold Fields (KGF) has decided to stage a protest in KGF on Sunday condemning the State government for not giving taluk status to KGF.

Chief Minister Jagadish Shettar announced the creation of 43 new taluks in his budget speech on Friday but KGF did not find a mention, CPI (M) State committee member G. Arjunan said.
