He was speaking to mediapersons after visiting the Karinjeshwara Temple along with Bantwala MLA Rajesh Naik.

“The local MLA had brought this to my notice as there was a threat to its presence and safety due to illegal quarrying. In this context, a number of rounds of talks have already been held and a decision has been taken to declare the place a sensitive area,” he said.
