Mysuru: Sri Niranjan Mutt Samrakshana Samiti and Maharani’s NTM School Federation members jointly took out a protest rally in the major thoroughfares of the City on Wednesday September 15.
The protesters warned Sri Ramakrishna Ashrama about occupying the mutt in the name of constructing Swami Vivekananda Memorial. Instead, Ashrama should write a letter to the State government and refrain from occupying both Niranjan Mutt and NTM School.
Activist P. Mallesh said, “We won’t give up the movement as we have the ability to take the agitation to state-wide. Revolutionary Basavanna taught about workmanship and showed a righteous path, while in the name of Swami Vivekananda, the Ashram is just grabbing the land,” Mallesh said.
Farmer leader Hosakote Basavaraju said, “we are warning the State government also not to allot the land to Ramakrishna Ashrama. If the land is given to Ashrama, Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai will no longer remain as CM,” he warned again. A memorandum addressed to Chief Minister was submitted at Deputy Commissioner’s office.
