Mysuru, January 22:- Parisara Snehi team of Mysuru distributed 101 saplings to the public to mark the first Memorial Day of Dr Shivakumara Swamiji of Siddaganga Mutt at R S Naidu Nagar in the city on Tuesday.
“Dr Shivakumara Swami was recognised as the ‘Walking God.’ He was a role model for the entire world with his social concerns. Seers of other mutts too should follow the path shown by him. He never did politics,” said former Mayor Sandesh Swamy.
President of Parisara Snehi team Lohith urged the central government to honour the seer with Bharat Ratna award and include the life history of the seer in school textbooks.
BJP leader Mahadevaprasad, Charan Raj, Nagaraj, Paramesh, Somanna, Veerabhadra, Madhu N Pujar, and others were present. (MR/KS)
