Inspired by folklore atmosphere in Karnataka State Folklore University (KSFU) campus here, Chief Minister Sadananda Gowda said that indigenous culture alone can save the nation.

The CM was welcomed with the folk song Tingalu Mulugidavo at the inauguration of KSFU. After seeing folk instruments in the campus, he said that native culture has saved India’s uniqueness at the global level. “Any country can even survive disasters but not the collapse of its culture,” the CM remarked.

Gowda requested the public to preserve the culture. “The government is committed to support the cause and it has approved the University, which is the first of its kind in the world,” he claimed. He assured that the government will sanction an additional Rs 18 crore for the construction of hostel and other buildings in KSFU campus. “Besides this, government is ready to fulfil all kinds of demands in the future,” he added.
