Kuruba community seer Kaginele Niranjananadapuri Swami, Congress leader HM Revanna and former MP K Virupakshappa among others were part of the delegation.

The delegation made a representation to the Tribal Affairs Minister to consider the State’s long-pending demand to include the Kuruba community in the ST group, according to the State government officials.
