BELAGAVI: The State Advocates’ Literary Forum, which is working to strengthen the state’s case in the border dispute with Maharashtra, has collected more Kannada documents from the District Sub-registrar Office.

Srishail Kupati of Mali Galli handed over copies of four receipts sent by the sub-registrar office of Belagavi to his grandfather Shankareppa Srishailappa Kupati in 1934, 1942 and 1946. The receipts were written in Kannada on brown-coloured paper.

These receipts are clear evidence which prove that Kannada was used as the administrative language in Belagavi even before the country became independent, said forum members Ravindra Totiger, Sudhir Nirwani and Shivanand Irrangoudra.

They appealed to people to provide them with evidence which could help the state’s argument in the border dispute with Maharashtra, which is pending before the  Supreme Court.

They said the forum will hand over the documents to the Karnataka Border Advisory Committee.
