Dear Sirs,                                                                     Memorandum

            Sub: Demand for the implementation of the recommendation made by Constitution Review Commission of India on the insistence of CNC for the creation of Coorg Development Board under article 371 of (Please note: Chapter 8: union state relation 8.23.1 of CRC report) our Constitution as has been done in relation to touching Hyderabad Karnataka Region – appropriate amendment to the Constitution is desirable at once.

            It may not be an out of place act on our part if we may be permitted to advert your kind attention to the subject and reference cited above and we take honor to remind you that the then Union Govt under the inimitable leadership of Bharat Rathna Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee Constituted a Constitution Review Commission of India under the Chairmanship of Mr. Justice M.N Venkatachalaiah a former Chief Justice of India and 11 other reputed Scholars, Jurists, Socio - Political Scientists & Constitutional experts as its members in the year 2000. And we drag this opportunity that we have placed a honest representation before the Commission on 21-11-2000 at Vighyan Bhavan New Delhi. The Hon’ble CRC has submitted its detailed report and recommended a Constitution of a Coorg.

Development Board under Article 371 of our Constitution, starting of Central University and a Sainik School for Coorg. Sainik School has already been started.

No doubt true that our Prime objects are carving out of Union Territory status or Coorg under Articles 2&3 of our Constitution and the creation of Codava land Autonomous Region under the 6th Schedule of our Constitution. We will continue our struggle for the creation of Codava land with UT Status & Autonomy, but we unhesitatingly request you to be good enough to constitute a Development Board for Coorg Dist on the lines of the recommendations made by the said CRC (Constitution Review Commission of India). Already Hyderabad Karnataka region has been assigned special package under Article 371 of our Constitution in the year 2014. Such a scheme definitely has all the opportunities to implement developmental programs, Education and Job reservation Quota etc to be valid for entire State. We take this opportunity to make available such a scheme to Kodagu region at once with an appropriate Constitutional amendment to that respect. No doubt true that we will continue our agitation for our legitimate dear demands as mentioned above.        

Development Board for Coorg Proposed by Constitution Review Commission of India “A Victory of CNC”

The recommendations of the Constitution Review commission regarding the establishment of Coorg Development Council under Article 371, the demand was originated, initiated and pressurized by CNC only, should be given effect to at once. (Please note: Chapter 8: union state relation 8.23.1 of CRC report) “The recommendation for a separate Development Board for Codagu, made by the Constitution Review Commission is a step forward to the resurgence of Codava Land”. The CNC had presented memorandums before the Commission headed by Honorable Justice M. N. Venkatachalaiah and had met almost all the members of the Commission and apprised them of the need for the restoration of Codava land, constitutional special guarantee for the Codava race, reservation for Codavas on the basis of primitive ethno linguistic tribal minority national status’, and autonomous Central University.

 

I recall about the special meeting convened by the CRC for a 30 member delegation on November 21, 2000 when the delegation had visited Delhi in connection with the CNC's rally and apprised him of the demands of CNC. "No doubt many of our requests have been left untouched, yet we have half succeeded and we are grateful to Justice Venkatachalaiah and other Constituents of the Commission." That the ball is now in the Union Government’s court. I am sure that the report submitted by the Commission will see easy passage in the parliament on presentation. The actual procedure required amendments to each and every area touched by the statute book separately. Likewise a Constitutional Amendment under Article 371 has to be made, as have been made amendments to Article 371 {A) to 371(j) in case of Nagaland, Assam, Manipur, Andhra, Sikkim, Mizorarn, Arunachal, Goa, Vidarbha, Marathwada, Saurashtra Kutch and Hyderabad Karnataka Region. All aspects concerning Development Boards require President's special powers. In accordance the Governor of each given state is responsible to act in acc9rdance with the directions of the President from time to time.

 

Significance of the Development Board:

A. Establishment of a separate Development Board for Coorg with the provision that a report on the working of this board will be placed each year before state legislative assembly. 

B. The equitable allocation of funds for development expenditure over the said areas, subject to the requirements of the state as a whole and, 

C. The equitable arrangement providing adequate facilities for technical education and vocational training and adequate opportunities for employment in Services Under the control of the state and Central Government.

The Governor has to act according to the directions issued by the President from time to time and the Governor has to act in his discretion. This means that even though the governor has to consult the ministers, the final decision in these matters shall be that of the Governor in his individual judgment, which no court can question. That the mention of “Coorg” was deleted when Article 242 of the Constitution (exclusively for Coorg when it was part C state) was repealed. Now that the amendment to Article 371 are expected to be made in course of time, it is more significant fact that the word “Coorg” shall find its entry into our Constitution once again.

PS  “The aldermen of Coorg met the Simon Commission in 1930s and certain provisions have been incorporated in the Govt. of India Act, 1935. It was the first and only occasion when something positive was made by the Codavas to find place in nation’s prime statute book. Now it is my organization (CNC) has done the repeat performance I add more authoritatively that none except my organization has made anything so far in relation to the districts development Board and the entire credit should go to the Codava National Council only.

   PS The person from Coorg who was a Cabinet Minister then in the J.H. Patel ministry who’ did not find it proper to say one single word regarding the need of Development Board for Coorg during July 1998, when the Karnataka Cabinet headed by J. H. Patel has the CM, recommended for the creation of a development board for Hyderabad Karnataka region, to the Union Government. 

I and my organization will dedicate ourselves to strive for the prime demands viz. resurgence of Cadava Land, right to self determination of Codava minority race, separate Codava land and constitutional special guarantee for Codavas land, language, culture, and heritage, economic and political freedom. It took us 24 years of dedicated efforts and we will continue till the goal is attained.

MEMORANDUM

Dear Sirs,

Sub: A New Delhi Chalo program by CNC and proposal to hold a Sathyagraha at National Capital on 01 Nov 2015. Insisting the Union Govt to re-play the game as it did in the year 1991 with regard to the erstwhile part ‘C’ State of Delhi after 36 years. And assign Union Territory status to Kodagu to be renamed as Union Territory of Codava land under Articles 2& 3 of our Constitution. – 100 members Codava Volunteers will squat in a Sathyagraha in the vicinity of Janthar MNanthar Parliament Street New Delhi thereafter will submit a detailed memorandum to the President and Union Govt.

It always is better if one goes deeply into the recent History of Delhi with that of Kodagu (Coorg). From 1952 to 1955 Delhi was a ‘C’ Type State (As is generally known that Shri Jawaharlal Nehru and G.B Panth prevailed upon the State re-Organization Commission to abolish State hood of Delhi and convert the same to be a Municipal Corporation understandably with a solitary intention of ousting Shri Chowdhri Bhrama Prakash the then Chief Minister of Delhi which resulted in the suppression of the natural aspirations of Delhi citizens). The Union Govt diluted the State hood Status of Delhi into Metropolitan Council on the basis of the recommendation of  the State Reorganization Commission headed by justice Fazal Ali from 1955 and it remained so until 1991, and once again on the insistence of the general Civil society of Delhi and in reality it amounts to the realization of  the past blunder, when once again Union Territory Status was conferred on Delhi with a new nomenclature as National Capital Territory of Delhi under a new insertion to the Constitution of India as articles 2&3 read with Articles 239AA. If we make a comparative study of the recent history of Kodagu with that of Delhi, we find a close similarity as between the two. A ‘C’ type State of Coorg merged with the state of Mysore; now Karnataka in the year 1956 once again consequent to the mischief played by the State re-Organization Commission headed by justice Fazal Ali. We believe that the some conspiracy identical to the one that transpired as between Jawaharlal Nehru and G.B Panth in order to abolish the Statehood of Delhi in the year 1955. It continues to be the very same even now. If Union Govt felt the need to feel the breath of the population while it reconverted the Civic – administrative body of Municipal Corporation of Delhi into a full fledged Politico – administrative Union Territory with a proper Legislative Assembly in the year 1991.

Our Organization i.e CNC took its birth only to reclaim Statehood initially since consequent upon amendment to the Constitution in renaming the ‘C’ Type States as Union Territories we too have changed our claim for the re -establishment of Coorg with a descriptive Codava Land Union Territory under Articles 2&3 of our Constitution and we stick to it. No doubt if the Union Govt could determine to re - establish a Statehood ; now Union Territory Status to Delhi, why not the same yard stick be made applicable with the claim for Union Territory of Codava Land of Coorg . Now we want the Union Govt to carry out the realization of the past mistake as mentioned and fulfill the definitive natural aspirations of Codava race at least now by conferring Codava land UT Status to Coorg. Such a thing is very essential if the disparity that has been applied to Kodagu and Codava race by the Successive State Govts in Karnataka we sincerely feel that with the things prevail just now the future of generality in Kodagu is felt to be very bleak. Our present Prime Minister has been speaking a lot extolling about the importance of Army and our Soldier Community these days why not our respectful P.M make applicable his mind to such a thing even with regard to Codavas by race who historically proved ourselves to be effective warriors and Soldiers always fighting for the Unity and Security of our Great Country by conferring UT Status to Coorg.

If the Union Govt could feel the aspirations of the generality of Delhi after 36 long years why not the same  yardstick should be made applicable to the question of Kodagu even though it remains a disrespected part and parcel of Karnataka during the past over 59 years. Kodagu i.e Coorg, the Cradle of Military genius Codava Martial Race and it has its own Cultural heritage, Civilization, Language, Customary personal laws, way of thinking, Demographic mosaic, Topographical feature, and unique Geo - political aspiration to be renamed as Union Territory of Codava land.

With such a background we are determined to stick to our theory and press forward our claim and we certainly try to make the Union Govt feel our aspirations as we did during the past 25 years. Once again we are certain to exhibit our wish to disown our status as a District of Karnataka with such a determination our organization would hold a Sathyagraha on State re-Organization day i.e on Karnataka Rajyotsava day on 01-11-2015 ; but never to celebrate a State re-Organization day. It definitely is intended to be for the establishment of Union Territory Status of Codava land. Each and every soul inhabited in Kodagu/Coorg are breathing with us.

It may not be an out of place act on our part if we are permitted to mention the behavior of successive Union Governments while it converted the following erstwhile part ‘C’ states except Coorg (part ‘C’ States Ajmer, Bhopal,Bilaspur, Coorg, Himachal Pradesh, Kutch, Manipur, Tripura and Vindhya Pradesh.) into either Union Territories or State hood or Autonomous development bodies with the special Constitutional protections either under 6th Schedule or Article 371,   but nothing has been mentioned with regard to Kodagu/Coorg. Now it is most appropriate time to seize the opportunity and establish Union Territory of Codava land in order to set right the historical wrong, blunder and fallacy committed in the year 1956 while Kodagu/Coorg became merged with a larger State and dislodge Kodagu from the Shackles of the tyrannical, rapacious and hegemonic State of Karnataka at once.

Thanking you,                                                                                                   with warm regards,

Without any reservation we would like to inform you that Two stone carved Elephants Statue at the entrance of Shri Bhangandeshwara Temple are damaged by Coward cruel Tippu Sulthan and his rapacious Soldiers during his continuous destructive invasions to Coorg during 1770’s and it certainly acts as bad Omen according to the Codava belief and Hindu Dharmashastra if you believe that the two stone carved elephants are to be preserved, better you take them to District Archeological Museum at Madikeri and replace the same with beautiful figures before 17 Oct 2015 on which day the Cauvery Tula Sankramana would be celebrated.

Your failure to replace the Elephant figures on or before this Tulasankramana, please take notice that CNC will hold Human Chain program to protest the same in the vicinity of the temple at Bagamandala.

Dear Sir,

Sub: PIL initiated against the special privilege offered in the Indian Arms Act 1959 in Section 3&4 for Codavas and Jamma holders to carry fire Arms   is a negation of snatching of the privilege so offered. - let not the Govt Violates the fundamental rights and our human rights as are enshrined in the Constitution of India by disturbing the entire class of Codavas who are known to be very strict, patriotic and loyal to our great Nation. The enigma so generated should stop at once. There is no locus stand. Hence the petition filed by mallafied intention may be closed in the interest of justice and equity.-  A Human Chain program by Codavas on 09-10-2015 in the G.T circle Madikeri

          Firearms for Kodavas: HC asks petitioner to move Centre

The Karnataka High Court on Wednesday disposed of a PIL petition questioning exemption given to Kodavas and Jamma land holders in Kodagu district from obtaining a licence to possess firearms under Section 3 and 4 of the Indian Arms Act, 1959.

A Division Bench, comprising acting Chief Justice Subhro Kamal Mukherjee

 

 And Justice B.V. Nagarathna, asked the petitioner, Chethan Y.K, a resident of Bengaluru, to submit a representation on his grievance about exemption to the Union Ministry of Home Affairs within two weeks.

The Bench also asked the Secretary, MHA to dispose of the representation within three months.

 

1963 notification

As per a notification issued on July 6, 1963, under the Arms Act, “every person of Coorg race (Kodavas) and every Jamma tenure holder in Coorg” are exempted from securing licence for possessing firearms.

Claiming that the continuation of the exemption, granted to some class of persons by the British government in pre-independent India in furtherance of their divide-and-rule policy, was unconstitutional, as it was based on irrational, fictitious and discriminatory grounds, such as race and ancestral land tenure, it was contended in the petition.

Since the matter involved happened to be a thing connected with Codava Race and its ancient heritage we seem it fit to oppose the subject matter which happend to be the theme of an PIL writ petition initiated by one Mr. Captain Y.K Chethan, a retired short service commissioned Officer and we oppose the move with all sincerity and vehemence. The Hon’ble High Court while disposing of the PIL directed the petitioner to make a regular application to Union Ministry of Home Affairs within 2 weeks seeking relief thereafter and also the Hon’ble High Court directed the secretary MHA to dispose of the petition within 3 months after such a petition is to be filed within 2 weeks after Hon’ble High Court handed down the judgement. Even before we touch the subject in question we proposed to remind all the concerned that such previlages as is in question just now is simply not restricted to Codavas by race. For instance Naga’s are empowered to carry and retain a long metallic sphere with each of them every time. Sikhs have right to carry sharp sword with them every time, Gorkha’s can carry Kukri’s and Mizo’s are empowered to retain and exhibit their ancient customary rights. For instance a Khalsa Regiment strictly only to Sikhs a Regiment in Indian Army and it has permitted the carrying of a 1 feet Sword by every Sikh component. In the like manner there are Regiments under the name and style as Gorkha regiment which has been empowered to carry a Kukri by every Gorkha soldiers. After all all such rights and practices have been drawn from respective ancient practices and Folk legal systems strict only to such of the racial groups from time immemorial. Those British rulers have continued the ancient rights and such things never been the result of their imagination. After all our Constitution came into being only in the year 1950. Nothing of the said practice is in violation of the privileges extended

 

 under article 14 of our constitution.

In fact our Constitution is the continuation of the legacy of the West Minister system.

Afterall a good majority of all the provisions of our Constitution used to be in existence legally much prior to the coming into the practice of our Constitution. Take for instance the Patriarch of our Constitution i.e MAGNA CHARTA – the Great English Charter of Liberty got from King John in 1215 and

the Govt of India Act 1935 came into being by the Britishers only and both the Statutes have been handed down and strictly implemented by the British Rulers only. This does not stop with that our major enactments are the legacy of British Govts in essence the theme involved in IPC and CRPC in effect are the continuation of the legislation practiced by British rulers only and abolition of Sathi act, Widow Remarriage act and abolition of Child Marriage act all are the legacy of Britishers.

            In order to curb the Criminal activities of “Pindari” resistance in and around Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh during the period of Sipoy Mutiny the British Govt has envisaged and introduced “Pindari” Act. Pindaris are known to create law and order problem in the area and banditry coupled with killing and looting of weapons from British Army and properties and their activities against the state incidentally “Sipoy Mutiny” also did so their atrocious behavior against the State which forced the British govt to introduce a “Pindari” Act and Disarmament Act. Fortunately not a single word about any Codava rising in Mutiny with the help of fire arms against the Govt for a single Moment. It is only in order to continue the special privileges accorded to Codavas to carry and retain Fire arms. The far sighted Mark Cubban has promulgated and has supported Codavas to continue our rights and privileges. The promulgation of Mark Cubban reads thus.

Notification 26-02-1861

“ in consideration of the exalted honour, loyalty and intrepidity, characteristics of this little Nation of warriors and in recollection of its conspicuous services in aid of the British Govt, it is my pleasing Duty to notify hereby, for general information, in virtue of the power vested in me by the Govt of India, that the provisions of the act, commonly called disarming Act are not applicable to the gallant people of Coorg”

Signed.                                                                                                                                         M.Cubbon,

                                                                             Commissioner    

Using of Gun is a customary practice amongst Codava Race. During the Male child births in the family, during Marriage celebrations and Rituals connected with deaths in the family and all festivals, no Codava is known to have misused fire arms against the State,

  1. During Freedom struggle
  2. When Coorg State become merged in the year 1956 with the state of Mysore, now Karnataka.
  3. During the period of Emergency in the year 1975.
  4. During the period of periodic General Elections and
  5. During the change of Govts.   

Afterall fire arms to every Codavas is an Article of Worship and great reverence always reposited under the “Nellakki Nadubade” of every “Ainmane” and

individual Homes. Fire Arms is as well a religious symbol and cultural emblem for every born Codava. Nodoubt true it is a part and partial of every Codava traditional attire with, Kupya (Long Coat) Peechi Katthi, Qumar Bandh and Fire arms is complete and Codava traditional attire becomes complete with such articles only. Every ancient Codava used to posses and carry sword, Bow & Arrow along with sphere. Until such times when Babar introduced fire arms weapons in India.

            The present PIL in question is an example of normal behavior of intruders, money bags and interested Tycoons swarming into Kodagu from outside with a solitary intention of Disarming of Codavas in order to enliven their evil designs have been propagating the theme against the special privileges of Codavas to carry Fire arms. At the same time the Govt of Karnataka which also has been trying to curb and eliminate Codavas is supporting such evil designs of the present writ petition. It may be understood that the Govt of Karnataka with an idea of avoiding comments and revolt from Codavas as instigated someone to filing of the PIL.

The main theme of our Constitution is to protect the Unity in Diversity & Diversity in Unity of our Demographic Mosaic within amongst the citizens of India. It is with such an idea only our Constitution has extended reservations to various tribal groups scheduled castes and special protection for religious, linguistic and ethnic minorities and their respective languages.

More ever our Govt has continued the legacy of the British rulers in keeping alive such caste based traditions and formalities touching groups and caste and communities in India For Ex: there is a Coorg 37  Medium rifles for Codavas and Coorg, there is a Sikh / Khlasa regiment for Sikhs, likewise  there is a Rajputhan regiment for Rajputs, Marata regiment for Marathas, Mahar regiment for Mahar dalits, Kummou regiment for Kummou people, Gadwal regiment for Gadwal people, Jaat regiment for Jaats, Dogra regiment for Dogra people, Gorkha regiment for Gorkha people etc, etc and nothing is opposed the theme has enshrined in our Constitution.

As regards the protection for land tenure held by different class of

 

people has enshrined in our Constitution, the relief sought for by the petitioner against protection of Land tenure extended to Codavas his claim becomes a nullity in law if the Govt taken in account such special prevelege extended to different classes of peoples to hold lands such as Kashmiris under article 370 and the people of the 8 North Eastern states in India under Article 371 of our Constitution. Simply said the existence and belief of our Nation hood is akin to a common banquet with a variety of flowers and the same is enlivened in our Constitution. Strictly said the petition reflects the mental derangement of the person the writ petition is seem to have known the existence of different classes of people with different belief language and customary practices and folk legal systems in India. Strictly speaking the PIL writ petition is amounts to insult the flowering constitution of India and Nothing more than that. Therefore we desire that Govt be pleased to extend all the clauses touching the special privileges are mentioned above to Codavas should continue without any hindrance, let not the Govt Violates the fundamental rights and our human rights as are enshrined in the Constitution of India by disturbing the entire class of Codavas who are known to be very strict, patriotic and loyal to our Great Nation. The enigma so generated should stop at once. There is no locus stand hence the petition filed by mallafied intention may be closed in the interest of justice and equity.

Thanking you,

MEMORANDUM

UNDER THE LEADERSHIP OF SHRI N.U NACHAPPA CODAVA A HUMAN CHAIN PROGRAM CONDUCTED UNDER THE AEGIES OF CODAVA NATIONAL COUNCIL AT KAKKABBE ON THIS DAY I.E ON 21-09-2015,  DEMANDING CODAVA LAND AND TO COMMEMORATE THE CELEBRATIONS TO MARK THE 25TH ANNIVERSARY (SILVER JUBILEE) OF CNC’S STRUGGLE FOR CODAVA LAND AS “CODAVA NATIONAL DAY.”

And

National Monument should be erected at Devati Paramb on the lines of jallian walabagh

And

The purpose for which the organization was established.

 

We take pleasure to inform about the purposeful completion of 24 years of the existence, and the continuation of Codava National Council and the incessant & our eventful political struggle for the demands of the establishment of Codava land UT status under articles 2&3 of our Constitution, Codava land Autonomous region under the 6th Schedule of our Constitution, Constitutional special protection to Codava Martial tribal Race under articles 340 & 342 of our Constitution, inclusion of Codava Thakk in the 8th schedule of our Constitution, coupled with protection for the Land tenure, customary practices and folk legal systems of Codava race including the continuation of right to hold Guns under article 371 of our Constitution on the lines of protection extended to Mizo’s and Naga’s. Special nomination of Codava race to Parliament and Assemblies under article 331 of our Constitution on the lines of Anglo Indians. Our demand includes the establishment of National monument at Devati Paramb on the lines of Jallian Walla bagh.

  1. It is a fact that Modi Govt has entered a pact with NSCN (I-M) granting Naga people with a “shared sovereignty” with India on 3 Aug 2015 in order to strengthen our federal system. – we demand a permanent political package to grant Codava Land with UT status under articles 2&3 of our constitution as done with Naga question.
  2. The said fact includes granting Naga Patkai Autonomy to Naga inhabited areas in the state of Arunachal Pradesh and our demands also include granting Autonomy to Codava land under the 6th schedule of our Constitution.
  3. We demand Tribal status to Codavas by race under articles 340 – 342 of our Constitution. We take pleasure to remind the Govt about the inclusion of Jain Community as religious minority even though they are known to be the wealthiest people in India besides being Hindus in real sense. Jaats are also granted OBC status despite the fact that they are economically, politically and socially most affluent class of people spread over in 9 states of our country. The Rajasthan state has granted tribal status to violent Gujjars whose numbers exceeds 8crore in the country. Even though Codavas by Race historically are known to be a Martial Class in Nature and numbering a meager 1 ½ lakhs population and that no other class of people would be affected or jeo paradize if we are granted with Tribal status. PS. unlike Zoroastrians who are scattered everywhere in the Nation besides being the richest and prominent in the judiciary, industrial arena and in general activities besides being most Cosmopolitan and urbane. They have a separate religion of their own called Zoroastrianism unlike Codavas who are rustic by nature confined to Kodagu /Coorg region. Hence tribal status is fittest for them. 
  4. Codava Thakk / Codava Language is as ancient as human civilization is rich and living spoken language throughout the history fit enough to be included in the 8th schedule of our Constitution. We propose to cite MANORAMA YEAR BOOK which mentions about the 16 popular languages of our country which includes Codava language to strengthen our claim – Manorama year book page 680 - other Popular Languages 1. Angika 2. Awadhi 3. Bhojpuri 4. Bundeli 5. Chhatisgarhi 6. Hariyanavi 7. Hinduatani 8.

Kanauji 9. Magadhi 10. Marwari 11. Bhili 12. Gondi 13. Kodava 14. Kutchi 15. Thulu 16. Mahi.

The provisions of article 371 of our constitution with inner line permit should be made applicable to Kodagu region at once as has been done in relation to Manipur and other North Eastern states. With a solitary intention of protecting our land from alienation and protecting our demography and such a things called as inner line permit. Important factor is that large number of underworld dons regular miscreants with harden criminality, and business Tycoons from across the Country with the active support and assistance from Hawala agencies and fake currency racketeers have been grabbing lands in the this District. With a major idea of protecting lands in the district and the interest of the natives the promulgation of such stringent law within Coorg is warranted.     

  1. Exclusive codava nominated representation in the parliament and state Assembly should be given under article 331 of our Constitution on the lines of Anglo Indian community.
  2. Devati Paramb massacre – a tragic human holocaust in the mankind – Insist for National Memorial / Monument of that Memorial on the lines of Jallianwala Bagh in memory of Amritsar Massacre. in memory of those Codava families (approximately 60 thousand unarmed Codavas) who were masssacred by ruthless tippu sulthan of srirangapatna and his rapacious soldiers, after 3 continuous invasions Tippu got defeated by Codava warriors disapointing in this insult he conspired to eliminate entire codava martial Tribal race, cunningly invited them for a grand feast in the pretext of entering a friendly treaty with Codavas at Devati Paramb in the year 1785 13 December. This heinous inhuman tragic genocide/holocaust in the mankind happened in this place. – but their great souls are still alive in Devati Paramb. PS All the proposals placed by CNC touching the request for treating Devati Parambu as National Monument are being hijacked and poached. The miscreants have not left, one single comma, semicolon, full stop, Subjects and Thok Namme etc., and the body language of all the communications, all  the public lectures and statements of our leader verbatim. They have not even allowed untouched the dress code of CNC and contents of all the wordings of our official lettered in order to  play miss chief we expect fellows  to distort the very nature of the movement we are leading. They try to confuse the Government, the Press and the general public always. Therefore we cushion the general public, the media and the Governmental setup to be very careful about the unhealthy and diabolic mischievous activities of these Jackals.
  3.  This organization CNC after performing a Pooja at Shri Paadi Igguthappa Temple held a massive Human Chain at Kakkabbe  this day on 21-Sep-2015 in order to pressurize our prime demands as are mentioned above and awareness human chain program would be conducted thereafter in all villages and towns in the District – as the first human chain program of the season held at Kakkabbe on 21-Sep-2015 and followed by the one at Napoklu on 28-Sep-2015 and 5-Oct-2015 at Kutta and on 07-10-2015 at Virajpet.

Calendar of events:

  1. Pattholadhi at Devati Paramb on 20-10-2015
  2. New Delhi Chalo Sathyagraha on 1-11-2015
  3. Codava National Day celebrations on 24-11-2015
  4. CNC Annual Puthari festival on 25-11-2015 (Birchyar 9) 
  5. CNC Mourning Day on 13-12-2015 (Devati Paramb Masacre Day)
  6. CNC Annual Thok Namme on 18 Dec 2015
  7. United Nations Holocaust remembrance day on 27-01-2016 (at Devati Paramb)

Hence we pressurize the Govt to consider our demands positively and as early as possible.

A CODAVA SATHYAGRAHA ON THIS DAY i.e. 14.09.2015 in the vicinity of DC’s office Madikeri-Coorg
CELEBRATIONS TO MARK THE 25TH ANNIVERSARY (SILVER JUBILEE) OF CNC’S STRUGGLE FOR CODAVA LAND AS “CODAVA NATIONAL DAY.”
And
National Monument should be erected at Devati Paramb on the lines of jallian walabagh
And
The purpose for which the organization was established

We take pleasure to inform about the purposeful completion of 24 years of the existence, and the continuation of Codava National Council and the incessant & our eventful political struggle for the demands of the establishment of Codava land UT status under articles 2&3 of our Constitution, Codava land Autonomous region under the 6th Schedule of our Constitution, Constitutional special protection to Codava Martial tribal Race under articles 340 & 342 of our Constitution, inclusion of Codava Thakk in the 8th schedule of our Constitution, coupled with protection for the Land tenure, customary practices and folk legal systems of Codava race including the continuation of right to hold Guns under article 371 of our Constitution on the lines of protection extended to Mizo’s and Naga’s. Special nomination of Codava race to Parliament and Assemblies under article 331 of our Constitution on the lines of Anglo Indians. Our demand includes the establishment of National monument at Devati Paramb on the lines of Jallian Walla bagh.
1.    It is a fact that Modi Govt has entered a pact with NSCN (I-M) granting Naga people with a “shared sovereignty” with India on 3 Aug 2015 in order to strengthen our federal system. – we demand a permanent political package to grant Codava Land with UT status under articles 2&3 of our constitution as done with Naga question.
2.    The said fact includes granting Naga Patkai Autonomy to Naga inhabited areas in the state of Arunachal Pradesh and our demands also include granting Autonomy to Codava land under the 6th schedule of our Constitution.
3.    We demand Tribal status to Codavas by race under articles 340 – 342 of our Constitution. We take pleasure to remind the Govt about the inclusion of Jain Community as religious minority even though they are known to be the wealthiest people in India besides being Hindus in real sense. Jaats are also granted OBC status despite the fact that they are economically, politically and socially most affluent class of people spread over in 9 states of our country. The Rajasthan state has granted tribal status to violent Gujjars whose numbers exceeds 8crore in the country. Even though Codavas by Race historically are known to be a Martial Class in Nature and numbering a meager 1 ½ lakhs population and that no other class of people would be affected or jeo paradize if we are granted with Tribal status. PS. unlike Zoroastrians who are scattered everywhere in the Nation besides being the richest and prominent in the judiciary, industrial arena and in general activities besides being most Cosmopolitan and urbane. They have a separate religion of their own called Zoroastrianism unlike Codavas who are rustic by nature confined to Kodagu /Coorg region. Hence tribal status is fittest for them.  
4.    Codava Thakk / Codava Language is as ancient as human civilization is rich and living spoken language throughout the history fit enough to be included in the 8th schedule of our Constitution. We propose to cite MANORAMA YEAR BOOK which mentions about the 16 popular languages of our country which includes Codava language to strengthen our claim – Manorama year book page 680 - other Popular Languages 1. Angika 2. Awadhi 3. Bhojpuri 4. Bundeli 5. Chhatisgarhi 6. Hariyanavi 7. Hinduatani 8.
Kanauji 9. Magadhi 10. Marwari 11. Bhili 12. Gondi 13. Kodava 14. Kutchi 15. Thulu 16. Mahi.
5.    The provisions of article 371 of our constitution with inner line permit should be made applicable to Kodagu region at once as has been done in relation to Manipur and other North Eastern states. With a solitary intention of protecting our land from alienation and protecting our demography and such a things called as inner line permit. Important factor is that large number of underworld dons regular miscreants with harden criminality, and business Tycoons from across the Country with the active support and assistance from Hawala agencies and fake currency racketeers have been grabbing lands in the this District. With a major idea of protecting lands in the district and the interest of the natives the promulgation of such stringent law within Coorg is warranted.      
6.    Exclusive codava nominated representation in the parliament and state Assembly should be given under article 331 of our Constitution on the lines of Anglo Indian community.
7.    Devati Paramb massacre – a tragic human holocaust in the mankind – Insist for National Memorial / Monument of that Memorial on the lines of Jallianwala Bagh in memory of Amritsar Massacre. in memory of those Codava families (approximately 60 thousand unarmed Codavas) who were masssacred by ruthless tippu sulthan of srirangapatna and his rapacious soldiers, after 3 continuous invasions Tippu got defeated by Codava warriors disapointing in this insult he conspired to eliminate entire codava martial tribal race, cunningly invited them for a grand feast in the pretext of entering a friendly treaty with Codavas at Devati Paramb in the year 1785 13 December. This heinous inhuman tragic genocide/holocaust in the mankind happened in this place. – but their great souls are still alive in Devati Paramb. PS All the proposals placed by CNC touching the request for treating Devati Parambu as National Monument are being hijacked and poached. The miscreants have not left, one single comma, semicolon, full stop, Subjects and Thok Namme etc., and the body language of all the communications, all  the public lectures and statements of our leader verbatim. They have not even allowed untouched the dress code of CNC and contents of all the wordings of our official lettered in order to  play miss chief we expect fellows  to distort the very nature of the movement we are leading. They try to confuse the Government, the Press and the general public always. Therefore we cushion the general public, the media and the Governmental setup to be very careful about the unhealthy and diabolic mischievous activities of these Jackals .
8.     This organization CNC held  a Sathyagraha in the vicinity of the office of the DC Kodagu Madikeri this day on 14-Sep-2015 in order to pressurize our prime demands as are mentioned above and awareness human chain program would be conducted thereafter in all villages and towns in the District – as the first human chain program of the season would be held at Kakkabbe on 21-Sep-2015 and followed by the one at Napoklu on 28-Sep-2015 and 5-Oct-2015 at Kutta and the like.
Calendar of events:
1.    Pattholadhi at Devati Paramb on 20-10-2015
2.    New Delhi Chalo Sathyagraha on 1-11-2015
3.    Codava National Day celebrations on 24-11-2015
4.    CNC Annual Puthari festival on 25-11-2015 (Birchyar 9)  
5.    CNC Mourning Day on 13-12-2015 (Devati Paramb Masacre Day)
6.    CNC Annual Thok Namme on 18 Dec 2015
7.    United Nations Holocaust remembrance day on 27-01-2016 (at Devati Paramb)
       Hence we pressurize the Govt to consider our demands positively and as early as possible.

Codava Land

Codava land, for minority Codava ethno ethno-cultural tribe with nomenclature intended to be called as Codava Autonomous Region (CAR) for short, within the permitted frame work of the much revered constitution of India. The struggle for the restoration of statehood actually ran through for nine long years and only thereafter the demand for “Codava Land” i.e. Codava Autonomous Region has been switched over to not in a distant past i.e. in the year 2001.

 

11th March

Nachappa

The CNC'S Nachappa gave up its demand for statehood more than one decade ago, yet the kannadigas Prabhaganda machine still brands him a "splitist", as if Karnataka holds a historically and legally incontestable entitlement to Codava land.

 

7th March

CNC
Since 1991 Mr.Nachappa Codava has come to symbolise one of the longest and most powerful resistance movements in modern Codava world and its history.
