Raichur: Thousands of devotees take part in temple procession amidst corona scare


Daijiworld Media Network - Raichur (MS)

Raichur, Aug 12: During the month of Shravana lots of temple processions take place in the northern Karnataka region. However, these are prohibited this year in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic. But people did not follow the rules of coronavirus and held temple fair of Veerabhadreshwara at Gaowduru village of Lingasugur taluk of the district.

More than 10,000 people of nearby villages took part in the temple fair. Without taking any precautions to prevent the spread of coronavirus, various rituals were performed during the fair.





Devotees offered thousands of coconuts to Lord Veerabhadreshwara and did not maintain any distance during the ritual. The taluk administration and police department have completely failed in containing the public from violating the COVID-19 rules, it was observed.

    No comments from Ruling Party. They can identify them with their dress..... Modi, Shobha , Tejasvi in silent mode.......
    Shobha opens her mouth if they are from another community.

    With this kind of discipline very remote chances of Karnataka coming out of this pandemic. If CM BSY cannot take steps like UP -CM bad days ahead for Karnataka.

    Devotees of some gods are exempted from rules, almost all rules. This is the vote bank of our illiterate politicians. Elsewhere if they gather 10 people FIR is already at advanced stage with innumerable Cr. penal codes. Our police have become shameless puppets.

    These people are a burden to earth, the local authorities are total failure. The state Government a bigger failure. If there are any covid active devotees in this crowd it would spread like wild fire. With this we can make out that people are not informed and cautioned by the Government.

    Why absolutely no police action when people are openly defying law? Sometime back I have seen police beating and chasing people assembled for a Friday prayer. I am really confused.

    What is the local administration doing ?? They had no clue at all when preparation for such a huge celebration was going on ??

    In this way a coup also can't be dismissed, can it ?

    First of all did they seek permission from talk administration and police to hold this public procession. Secondly, they violated the existing lock down and social distancing guidelines. So, a severe case should be filed on the temple and devotees. 10000 people can easily infect another 20000 and so on. This is going to be a big challenge for the govt and an expense.
