Minister for Kannada and Culture Umashree took exception to Deputy Commissioner Amlan Aditya Biswas’ power-point presentation on the Hampi Utsav in English.

She was participating in a meeting held here on Monday to review preparations for the three-day festival. As Mr. Biswas started his presentation, Ms. Umashree interrupted and objected to the details written in English.

“Being a Deputy Commissioner, it is wrong to use English to present details. Kannada should get importance at every level,” she said. Apologising for this, Mr. Biswas said that the Kannada script was not there on his laptop and the mistake would not recur.
