Actor-politician Jaggesh has spoken against the use of non-Kannada languages like Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam and Hindi in the BBMP call centre. He gave support to an online campaign that questioned the BBMP providing call centre services in six languages in Bengaluru instead of in Kannada.
The campaign wondered why when there is only Telugu in Hyderabad, Tamil in Chennai and Hindi in Delhi, these languages were being promoted by BBMP in Bengaluru instead of the local language. Though BBMP is ruled by BJP, the same party as Jaggesh, he has not desisted from voicing his protest. Jaggesh has called upon the youngsters to prevent this and save Kannada. Jaggesh's tweet has become the biggest motivator on Thursday and the topic #ParaBhasheBeda was trending almost all day long
