State for religious institutions' help in de-addiction exercise

The Karnataka State Temperance Board plans to seek assistance from religious institutions to take out de-addiction exercise  effectively across the State.

The Board has organised a two-day round table conference on January 11 and 12 at Gandhi Bhavan, where about 50 religious leaders from all over the State are expected to participate and deliberate on innovative methods that can be taken up to tackle growing instances of alcoholism.

Addressing the media in Bangalore, Board Chairperson Sachidananda Hegde said that religious leaders of all three major communities – Hindu, Christian and Muslim- had vouched their support for the cause. Siddaganga Mutt seer Shivakumar Swami will inaugurate and Chief Minister D V Sadananda Gowda will preside over the conference.
