Mysuru, May 9:- “We have to stop going around carrying Basavanna’s idol on our heads and instead, accept his ideologies and live in the path he showed,” said corporator MV Ramaprasad.
He was speaking after inaugurating Basava Jayanti at Chamundipuram Park here organised by Parivartanam Trust on Wednesday.
“Though the government has instructed the concerned authorities to set up the images of Basavanna in government offices, most of the offices have not followed it. Setting up the image of Basavanna doesn’t mean worshipping him but to make officials govern according to the ideologies of Basavanna,” said director of Veerashaiva Lingayata, Mysuru wing, Manjunath.
Vinay Kanagal, Kadakola Jagadish and others were present. (MR/KS)
