Lingayat religion tag: Will move SC if needed, dares Mathe Mahadevi

Mathe Mahadevi, head of the Basava Dharma Peetha, Koodalasangama, said that she was willing to approach the Supreme Court if a separate religion status was not accorded to Lingayat-Veershaiva (Basava Tatva); by the Centre. 

Addressing a media meet on Sunday, she said that the struggle for a separate religion tag, was still on, and she would meet the Prime Minister Narendra Modi over the issue and present a memorandum. "Then we will hold a massive march in Delhi," she added. 

It may be recalled that the movement for a separate religion tag for Lingayats is several months old. Former chief minister Siddaramaiah had written to the Centre recommending that a separate religion status be accorded to Lingayat-Veerashaiva (Basava Tatva) followers.  

Mathe Mahadevi also demanded that a Lingayat be made deputy chief minister, especially M B Patil. "He has the capability to be deputy CM," she opined.
