Mysuru, January 13:- Devotees of Dr Shivakumara Swami of Siddaganga Mutt held a postcard campaign on Monday, demanding Bharat Ratna for the seer ahead of his first memorial day on January 21.
The devotees gathered in front of Kyathamaranahalli Post Office here and posted postcards, urging the Centre to honour the seer with Bharat Ratna.
“January 21 should be announced as ‘Dasoha Day’ in memory of Dr Shivakumara Swamiji. He should be honoured with Bharat Ratna. The credit of serving food to lakhs of people every day goes to Siddaganga Mutt. The seer never let anyone remain hungry. Even on the day of his demise, he made sure that no one remained hungry. Announcing January 21 as Dasoha Day would be a tribute to the seer,” said corporator Usha Narayana Lolappa.
