Basavaraj Bommai, the Chief Minister of Karnataka, has stated that any software related to the state government will have Kannada templates.
Bommai, speaking at a launch event for the e-Kannada project, said, ‘Kannada language should be developed in a manner that will cater to all aspects of Kannada and Kannadigas that would cater to the needs of Karnataka’s development. The state government would render all help in this regard.’
