Mysuru, September 16:- The fans of Dr Vishnuvardhan will intensify protests against the state government’s negligence towards construction of the memorial of renowned actor Dr Vishnuvardhan,” said C V Manjunath, president of Dr Vishnuvardhan Abhimani Okkoota, here at a press meet held at the Mysuru Press Club on Saturday.
“The government has changed places of Vishnu Memorial thrice in the past three years. The memorial is facing legal hurdles at all the three places and it is an insult to Vishnuvardhan by the state government, which has failed to take a proper decision,” he said.
“A mammoth protest rally will be organised from the premises of Kote Anjaneyaswamy Temple to the deputy commissioner’s (DC) office. We will decide about the protests soon. We will not withdraw protests even if the family members of Vishnuvardhan try to intervene over the issue. The works of memorial should begin as per the wish of Vishnuvardhan’s wife Bharathi,” he added.
Ashok, Ramaswamy, Nagarajegowda, Ramaswamy and others were present.
