Mangaluru: Senior Congress leader and Founder Trustee of Kudroli Sri Gokarnanatheshwara Temple B Janardhan Poojary held a Puja for the recovery of brave heart Lance Naik Hanumanthappa at the Gokarnanatheshwara Temple here on February 10.
After offering the special Puja, Poojary speaking to mediapersons said, “Our soldiers are working on the boarders to safe guard our country by sacrificing their life. Ten soldiers were posted at the army base camp at Siachen Glacier. Six days ago when an avalanche hit the camp, all the ten soldiers were buried under the snow. Out of 10, nine soldiers have died but Hanumanthappa was found alive after 6 days which is a miracle but his condition is said to be critical”.
Poojary further said that Siachen Glacier has become a war zone and soldiers stationed there face temperatures below minus degrees. Working in such camps is a great task. At Kudroli God has given everything when asked for. Today Hanumanthappa is on ventilator. We have prayed for the souls of the 9 departed soldiers who have sacrificed their life and we also pray to God for Hanumanthappa’s recovery. We need such brave soldiers for our country and God will surely listen to our prayers so that Hanumanthappa will recover soon.
