Yuva Janata Dal says it will raise funds for caves repair works

Addressing a press meet, he said BJP came to power in the name of Datta peeta. However, now it does not have concern for it.

He said Yuva Janata Dal activists raise funds and repair it.

“A large number of tourists visit Bababudangiri and return back as Dattaguhe is not repaired. MLA C T Ravi had assured to take up the work after monsoon. Now one monsoon is over and another monsoon has set in. Tender has not been invited to undertake the repair work yet,” he alleged.

He said “the man who created the issue of Datta peeta and became MLA, after making his position strong in politics, has forgotten Datta peeta. Before becoming the MLA, he has sowed the seeds of hatredness among the youth and later, put an end to the struggle for the peeta,” he opined.

“Dattapeeta guhe caved in on last June 28. Till today, no developmental works have been undertaken,” he alleged.

MLA had assured to complete the work on repair of Datta guhe before the next Datta Jayanthi.

However, Ministers like Shobha Karandlaje and Krishnaiah Shetty had directed to take up the work immediately during their visit to the spot recently. However, no concrete action has been taken so far.

The statue of Datta is kept in treasury. It shows how much respect MLA has towards Datta statue, he added.

Bharath said: “If they have the will power, let them come forward to repair Datta guhe. Otherwise, they should stop giving statements on it. If the datta guhe is not repaired by Datta Jayanthi, we will start a movement in its premise,” Janata Dal leaders said.
