Chief Minister Siddaramaiah paid a visit to Suttur Mutt and offered prayers ahead of Dasara Jumboo Savari.
“Karnataka is facing a drought like situation. Monsoon rains were very weak this year. I had prayed Goddess Chamundeshwari to bless the state with better rains. We have to celebrate Dasara at this hour of discomfort. I will pray for better rains again during the Jumboo Savari,” CM said.
District In-charge minister Dr H C Mahadevappa, Sugar and Cooperation minister H S Mahadevaprasad and others were present during the visit.
