Students who arrived from across the state to perform on Friday at the Kannada Rajyotsava celebrations organised by the State Department of Public Instruction, are practicing at Kanteerava Stadium in the city.

Around 8,000 children from all the four divisions — Mysore, Belgaum, Gulbarga and Bangalore— arrived to showcase their talents at the event. Till 2012, students only from Bangalore division were invited. This year, the Department has decided to involve students from other divisions too.

Primary and Secondary Education Minister Kimmane Rathnakar said, “We have made all the arrangements for the children who have come from other places. On Friday, Chief Minister Siddaramaiah will inaugurate the event.”

“Every year the Department used to spend `25 lakh for Rajyotsava celebrations, but this time it has gone up to `75 lakh and the Chief Minister approved it,” added Rathnakar.
