'Preserve the sanctity of Brahmagiri'

'Preserve the sanctity of Brahmagiri'

Coffee planter Manavattira Dore Somanna warned the district administration of locking up the entrance of Brahmagiri if the entry of public is not banned within a week.

He further added that the Brahmagiri, the birthplace of river Cauvery has been converted into an abode of illegal activities. "Tourists have been spoiling the sanctity of the place by littering it with garbage. This will affect the purity of river Cauvery."

He said that the district administration should also ban the illegal shops near Talacauvery. Tourists should be banned from discarding the food leftovers at the Triveni Sangama in Bhagamandala. CCTV camera should be installed to monitor the activities of people. Additional staff should be deployed at the spiritual destination to perform the religious rituals smoothly. Also, the temple should conduct the 'Ashtamangala Prashne', he added.

Badumanda Muttappa, Padiyammanda Yogish Monnammaiah, Manavattira Papu Changappa and Manavattira Harish Biddappa were present in the press meet.
