Bengaluru (Karnataka) [India], November 1 (ANI): Karnataka Chief Minister Siddaramaiah on Wednesday said that a call will be made based on the report of the committee formed to decide on whether to change the previous flag or to retain it.
"We have formed a committee to decide on the state flag. It'll decide if the same flag should continue or if changes are required. They will submit a report on the same and then we will take the final call," Siddaramaiah said.
The Committee was constituted after a representation was submitted to the state government by Journalist-writer and president of Karnataka Vidyavardhaka Sangha, Dharward, Patil Puttappa and social worker Bheemappa Gundappa Gadada.
They had urged the government to design a separate flag for Kannada 'naadu' and accord statutory standing for that. (ANI)
