We have constantly succeeded in organising this event. We can witness lot of cultures, tradition of coastal belt as well as the other parts of the state where they exhibit it through procession.”

The minister took a jibe at Vidya Dinaker who organised a ‘surprise’ protest in between the inauguration and said, “I thank Vidya Dinaker for setting up the Karavali Utsav beautifully with the protest. This is an added feather to the cap of Karavali Utsav.”
