All you need to know about the new district

Anirudh Sravan Pulipaka has been appointed as the District Collector and Dr. Arun K IPS has been appointed as the District’s Superintendent Of Police (SP).

The Vijayanagara district of Karnataka, named after Raja Krishna Devaraya’s Vijayanagara empire, was established on Saturday. Vijayanagara would be made up of the Taluks of Hospet, Harapanahalli, Kudligi, Hoovina Hadagali, Hagaribommanahalli, and Kotturu, which will be carved out of the mine-rich Ballari district.

Its administrative capital will be Hospet. All of the key Vijayanagara dynasty sites are located in this region, making it a popular tourist destination.

The establishment of the new district was honoured by a colourful ceremony that included a spectacular firework show. Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai, while releasing the Government Order announcing the formation of the new district, said the Vijayanagara empire was not built in a day, but rather through the efforts of Hakka (also known as Harihara Raya) and Bukka Raya, the Tungabhadra River, and the blessings of saint Vidyaranya.

“With the blessings of former Chief Minister B S Yediyurappa, this new district has also been constituted after many efforts,” he said. Tourism Minister Anand Singh was praised by the Chief Minister for his efforts in forming the new district.

He also expressed the hope that the formation of the district will mark a new era of art, music, literature and culture, for which the erstwhile Vijayanagara was famous for. The Chief Minister hoped that the archaeological sites would now be well protected.

He also assured financial support to the new district. Bommai laid the foundation for 56 various public works in the newly formed district on the occasion. Yediyurappa and ministers Anand Singh, Govind Karjol, Munirathna and B Sriramulu were present.
