Prime News, National, Karnataka, Religion, Bengaluru, September 15:- Chief Minister Basavaraj S Bommai on Tuesday (September 14) directed the district authorities not to take any hasty steps in demolishing illegally constructed temples, as per a Supreme Court directive, and said specific orders would be given in two days after studying the order in detail.
The instruction came against the backdrop of the demolition of a temple in Nanjangud in Mysuru district three days ago.
Besides the opposition Congress, many legislators of the ruling BJP had also expressed anger over the demolition.
“No hasty decision of demolishing temples should be taken in any part of Karnataka,” the Chief Minister told the media in Bengaluru.
He said the Supreme Court order will be thoroughly studied and discussed at the cabinet meeting and a specific order given in the next two days.
On the Nanjangud temple demolition, Bommai said all details will be tabled in the House. He added that the Deputy Commissioner of Mysuru and the Tahsildar concerned have been given notices, asking them to explain why they acted without taking all the people into confidence. (Inputs: Agencies, NGB)
