Activists of a Kannada outfit will "picket" Parliament House in New Delhi on November 28 against the Kerala governments "attempts to close down Kannada schools and enforce Malayalam language" in Kasaragod district bordering Karnataka.

Karnataka Navanirmana Sene (KNS) president Bhimashankar Patil told reporters here Tuesday that 1,000 activists would participate in the ticketing programme.

He said the organisation is against "enforcing" Malayalam language in Kasaragod, where a majority of the population speak Kannada and are closely associated with Dakshina Kannada district.

Patil also wanted the Dakshina Kannada district administration to invite representatives from Kasaragod district to the 'Kannada Rajyotsava' celebrations.

Kasaragod close to DK and many writers from the district have contributed to Kannada language and literature, he said.

Kannada Sahitya Parishat former president Harikrishna Punaroor and Karavali foundation president Shivaram Kasaragod were also present at the press meet.
