Eminent scholar Kalburgi: "Krishnadeva Raya was anti-Kannadiga. He suppressed Kannada language."

Scholar M M Kalburgi, a former vice chancellor of Hampi University, says Krishna Deva Raya did “nothing” to promote Kannada language. “I would not hesitate to call him anti-Kannadiga. He suppressed our language by patronising Telugu poets in his court.” And, then a rejoinder: “Plus, he encouraged Tamils too. Today if you find large pockets of Tamilians living in Bangalore, it is because of Krishna Deva Raya.”

BELGAUM: Kannada research scholar and former vice-chancellor of Kannada University (Hampi) Dr M M Kalburgi has said that Vijaynagar empire, ruled by Krishnedevaraya collapsed not because of Muslims, but due to a war between Kannadigas and Telugus.
Inaugurating a national level Kannada Research Methodology Workshop organsied by Kannada Sahitya Parishat and local Lingaraj College here on Wednesday, Kalburgi said that final war of Vijaynagar which broke at Talikoti was not between Hindus and Muslims, but it was between Kannadigas and Telugus. He said that Krishnadevaraya had brought Telugu culture in Kannada soil. He advised the Karnataka government to stop conducting of Hampi Utsavs which is being organised to give importance to Krishnadevaraya and advised research scholars not to fear to tell the truth.
