Shivamogga: Malenadu Mathadishara Parishat, the union of seers of the Malnad region said that any leadership change in the state would be more dangerous than the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
Speaking at a programme at Shivayogashrama in Shikaripura Taluk , Bekkina Kal Mathh Seer Mallikarjuna Murugharajendra said, “No one should intervene and trouble the smooth functioning of the government. If anyone tries to destabilise the government, they will have to pay for it. Yediyurappa has faced a lot of problems after becoming the Chief Minister. He faced the worst floods and COVID pandemic. We should appreciate his efforts in tackling the crisis effectively.”
Malenadu Mathadishara Parishat said they would support Yediyurappa to remain in power till the completion of the term.
“The leadership change in Karnataka will be more dangerous than COVID-19. Today, Karnataka needs Yediyurappa to tackle the pandemic situation. We need a Chief Minister for the developmental works in Shivamogga too. The seers of Shivamogga are always with Yediyurappa,” added Murugharajendra.
