Havyaka community urged to contribute to development of villages

HUBLI: Primary and Secondary Education Minister Vishweshwar Hegde Kageri has appealed to members of Havyaka Samaja to retain the community’s village culture.

He was inaugurating “Havyaka Habba” organised by the Havyaka Educational and Cultural Organisation of Hubli-Dharwad here on Sunday.

The Minister said that most of the members of the Havyaka community had shifted to urban areas from villages. Hence the “village culture”, which was an integral part of the community, was missing now, he said.

Conservation

Mr. Kageri called upon members of the community to contribute to the development of their villages, and thereby facilitate conservation of the village culture.

He lauded the efforts made by the organisation to bring all the members of the Havyaka community on a single platform, and said that it should be made a model organisation.

Assistance

Pralhad Joshi, Dharwad North MP, announced that he would release Rs. 5 lakh for construction of a “Samskrutika Bhavana” from his Constituency Development Fund. Speaker Jagadish Shettar promised help for projects aimed at development of the region.

President of the organisation Balakrishna Hegde; secretary Gopalkrishna Hegde and director Arunkumar Habbu were among those present. The “habba” concluded with presentation of various cultural programmes.
