A public reception was held on Friday in connection with Walk of Hope, a padayatra led by social reformer and educationist Sri M.

Chief Minister Siddaramaiah welcomed the walk at Thalaghattapura on Kanakapura Road. The chief minister said that the underlying message of love and co-existence in all religions should form the basis of building communal harmony in India. “I took part in the Padayatra from Bengaluru to Ballari during elections, covering a total of 360 km and I know it is a tough task,” CM added.

Sri M, also known as Madhukaranth Ji, said that religion is one’s personal experience and it was important to live one’s life without harming anyone. The Walk of Hope, advocating peace and harmony, was flagged off from Kanyakumari on January 12. It has so far traversed nearly 1,400 km covering various cities in Tamil Nadu and Kerala over the past 82 days. The Karnataka leg of the Walk of Hope commenced on March 7.

On April 4, a team of 60 padayatris will start at 9 am from Shankaraa Foundation, Kanakapura Road to Ashirvad Community Hall on St Mark’s Road. On April 5, they will walk from St Mark’s Road to Freedom Park. After a gap of few days, padayatris will head to Tumakuru, Chitradurga, Davangere, Hubballi, Dharward and Belagavi.
