Gudleppa Hallikeri (1906–1972)[1] was an Indian freedom fighter who is a native of Hosaritti in Haveri district of Karnataka state.[2] He started a residential school Gandhi Grameena Gurukul in Hosaritti.

Hallikeri worked with many other freedom fighters such as Mahatma Gandhi, Mailara Mahadevappa and Sanikoppa, using peace protests and non-violence. There is a larger than life iron wrought statue of Hallikeri in his final hometown, Hubli.[citation needed]

Hallikeri actively worked with Aluru Venkata Rao in the unification of Karnataka.

Karnatak Lingayat Education Society's Gudleppa Hallikeri Arts, Science & Commerce College in Haveri, is one of the colleges in North Karnataka, named after him.[3]
