Mysuru: Mysuru -Kodagu MP Pratap Simha said that he will support Save Chamundi Hill activism, as it’s time to rethink that the Hill is not a tourist destination, but a religious place.
Reacting to media queries about the ongoing campaign to save Chamundi Hills from ropeway and other projects, on Friday April 22 Simha said, “The ropeway project was the old demand to improve the tourism sector. In this regard, the State Government has announced funds in its budget this year. But we all will discuss its pros and cons as many of them are condemning the ropeway project and terming it as destructive. If highly necessary we can proceed, otherwise will drop the project.”
“Chamundi Hills is a sacred hill and is not like any other hill shrine dependent on tourism. I extend all my support to save Chamundi Hills as a sacred place,” said Simha.
