Congress government uses ‘Prasad’ in its political rally in Byndnoor

In a shameless breach of Endowments law and throwing the rules to the wind, the Congress party used the Prasada of Kollur Mookambika Temple to feed their workers in the “Sadhana Samavesha’ held at Byndoor near Kollur in Karnataka. The Prasada (which is basically a food for Congress) was transported from Kollur in a truck. ‘Sadhana Samavesha’ is a function held to exhibit the highlights of the Government. The driver in the moving truck when asked said that it is food for ‘CM saahebru’s programme’.

The video has gone viral on social media and this move of the government has been criticized by everyone. Section 19 (1) & (2) of the Endowments Act of Karnataka clearly says that any contribution or donation to the temple or religious institution shall not be used for any other uses. The donation and contributions to the temple and religious institution shall be used for temple use only. This decision comes after the Karnataka aided private schools managed by the Sri Rama Vidyakendra Trust.


The hasty withdrawal of financial grant to Kalladka schools in August 2017 was witnessed as an act of “setting political scores” and earn some political points. Dakshina Kannada which has seen the murder of a number of Hindu activists in the previous year – termed as the “Hindutva Lab” of Karnataka. The executive officer at Kollur Mookambika temple said that previously they adopted two schools which were run by Prabhakar Bhatt and the temple itself manages 6 to 7 schools in Kundapur taluk of Udupi district. Now, the question is, when the temple had enough funds to run 7 schools, why did the government interfered and cancel the funding to the schools run by Kalladka Prabhakara Bhatt.

The act of misusing the government machinery which includes pressurizing the Tahsildar to make food arrangements for “Sadhana Samavesha” needs the rigid condemnation.
