Unveiling statue will strengthen bonds: CM

Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa has said that the decision to unveil the statue of Tamil saint-poet Thiruvalluvar here on August 9, is aimed at paving the way for harmonious relationship between Tamils and Kannadigas.The CM was speaking to a delegation of the Federation of Karnataka Tamil Sanghams, comprising over 13 organisations, which called on him on Tuesday. The government had decided not to link the unveiling of the statue to other vexed disputes like Cauvery river water sharing and the Hogenakkal drinking water project.
