Kannadigas in Delhi remember Tipu Sultan

New Delhi : A large number of Kannada-speaking people here celebrated the bicentenary of the death of Tipu Sultan, popularly known as the Tiger of Mysore.

Inaugurating the celebration here on Sunday, organised by the Dehali Kannadiga, a Kannada monthly published from Delhi, its editor and a writer, M.B.Samaga, said Tipu fought against the British and did not submit himself to the paramountcy of a foreign power. After introducing many reforms, Tipu made Mysore, a prosperous and progressive State of India, during the 18th century.

Mr.Samaga urged the Union government to install a statue of Tipu in Delhi and introduce a daily superfast express train between Mysore and Delhi and name it after him. (PTI)
