Acharya opens Kamalashile temple 'dwajastamba'

 
Addressing the gathering after inaugurating the new silver plated ‘dwajastamba’ of Kamalashile Sri Brahmi Durgaparameshwari Temple in Kundapur on Friday, Acharya said that the sanctions to temples were increased only after BJP assumed power in the State. Except in undivided Dakshina Kannada district, most of the temples in the state are maintained by the government. Hence, the sanctions to Muzrai Department have been increased considerably, he added.

The sanctions to Kannada and Culture Department have been increased to Rs 180 crore to preserve the culture, language and heritage in the State. The proposal regarding the construction of a Yatri Nivas at Kamalashile for the convenience of devotees will be disucssed with the Tourism Minister G Janardhan Reddy, he assured. Shimoga MP B Y Raghavendra said that the arecanut growers in Malnad are getting a support price for arecanut, which is less than the actual production cost. “I will bring the matter to the notice of the Central government and urge the Union Agriculture Ministry to announce a support price of atleast Rs 125,” he added.  Third Finance Commission Report Implementation Task Force Chairman A G Kodgi released the book titled ‘Sri Kshetra Kamalashileya Sthala Purana’ written by Kamalashile Shridhar Adiga on the occasion. Byndoor MLA K Lakshminarayana presided. Kollur Sri Mookambika Temple former Administrative Trustee B M Sukumara Shetty, Industrialist K Anandarama Aithal, Zilla Panchayat Member Sudhakar Kulal, Taluk Panchayat Members Sampigedi Sanjeeva Shetty, Nagappa Kotari, H Raju Pujari, Gram Panchayat President H Shankaranarayana Chatra, Kamalashile Temple Administrative Trustee S Sachidananda Chatra and others were the guests.
