Stating a false reason that at Shree Manjunatha temple Kadri; Sathyanarayana pooja is organised and pamphlets are printed- to collect donations that eve.
The Kadri temple authorities have received a message that a defaulters group is collecting funds stated as above and it has requested the public’s to be aware of the muggers. On receiving the information that donations are collected on behalf of the temple, the Temple’s authorities have clearly specified that none is appointed on behalf of the temple to collect the money. Hence forth the temple has requested that, if the public’s find any miscreants collecting funds on behalf of the temple, they are requested to complain at the nearest police station.
Kadri Sri Manjunatha Temple is subject to the jurisdiction of the Department of Religious Endowments and class ‘A’ notified temple. The services held here are passed by the administrative board and the approved by the government. Recently some are collecting donations from the public, stating that, Special Satyanarayana pooja will be performed at Kadri temple and the public have informed this to the Temple’s office.
Hence, the Temple has stated that people are not appointed to collect any funds for Sathyanarayana Pooja. Hence the temple authorities have requested the public through the media that, if any such persons are found collecting funds; immediately inform the nearest police station.
