Seer flays mining lords

Speaking to reporters here on Tuesday on the eve of receiving Padma Bhushan award at Rashtrapati Bhavan on Wednesday, the seer, in an oblique reference to Reddy brothers' activities in the State, said people of Karnataka had been watching everything.

 “Such incidents have occurred earlier too and the people have taught a nasty lesson to the perpetrators.”

Reacting to a question on destruction of nature in the name of mining, he said it was sad that natural wealth is being plundered by a section of people for their selfish gains.

However he did not mention names  while obviously referring to mining lords, but he said the authorities concerned should take steps to protect the nature for our future generation.

He said the Mutt has planned to open two hostels - one each for boys and girls in Delhi for students coming from Karnataka to pursue civil services exam. The total capacity will be around 150 in each hostel and food and accommodation will be provided  free of cost, he said. He inaugurated the building complex at BGS International Public School at Dwarka
Law and Justice Minister M Veerappa Moily and Additional Representative of Karnataka Government B N Nagesh felicitated Swamiji.
