Karnataka Minister for Kannada and Culture CT Ravi, on Monday announced a list of Kannada Rajyotsava winners who will be awarded by Chief Minister BS Yediyurappa on Rajyotsava Day,  November 1.

The day is celebrated every year as part of the state’s tradition. Even last year, then Chief Minister HD Kumaraswamy had hosted the Rajyotsava utsav at the Kanteerava Stadium in Bengaluru.

According to previous reports, on November 1, 1956, Kannada-speaking areas of the erstwhile Bombay and Madras presidencies, along with an old Hyderabad region, merged with old Mysore to form the new southern state. Originally formed as Mysore state, it was renamed Karnataka in 1973 during the tenure of Chief Minister Devaraj Urs.
