'Name airport after Siddarooda Swamiji'

A massive rally, which included folk troupes, bhajan teams, seers, and tableax was taken out from Siddharoodamutt to Mini Vidhan Soudha here on Thursday, urging the State Government to recommend the Union Civil Aviation Ministry to name the upgraded Hubbali Airport after Sri Siddharooda Swamiji.

Members of Sadguru Siddharooda Seva Samiti, Shri Siddharodaswamy Mutt Trust Committee, seers of Siddharooda tradition, devotees, and others took part in the rally which moved via Indi Pump Circle, Old Hubballi Durgadabail, New English School, Bammapur Oni, Javalisal, Dajibanpet, Sangolli Rayanna Circle and Chennamma Circle. At Mini Vidhan Soudha, the memorandum was submitted to Assistant Commissioner Mahesh Karjagi.

Like various other airports named after saints and other great personalities of that place, the Hubballi Airport should be named after Sri Siddharodaswamy who has devotees of all communities in several States, they said.

Earlier, Sri Abhinava Shivaputra Swamiji stated that the demand should be brought to the notice of the government first, before staging protest or raising slogans against somebody. If governments and political parties really want to promote secularism, the Hubballi Airport should be named after Sri Siddharooda Swamiji, he added.

Hubballi Vimana Nildana Santrastara Horata Samiti President Hanumanthappa Unkal recalled that before giving their land for the airport upgradation, they had demanded Sri Siddharooda Swamiji's name for the airport.

Sri Shivanand Bharati Swamiji, Sri Purushottamananda Swamji, Sri Sahajananda Swamiji, Dharanedra Javali, Jyoti Salimath, Mahendra H Singhi, and others were present.
