‘Swabhimana Jatha’ based on Sri Narayana Guru Teaching ‘One Caste, One Religion, One God for Man’ Held
Mangaluru: A vehicle rally ‘Swabhimana Jatha’ leading from Kankanady Garodi Temple via Pumpwell, Bendoorwell, Balmatta Road, Hampankatta, K S Rao Road, M G Road, Lady Hill circle, and culminating at Kudroli Temple condemning the Rejection of Sri Narayana Guru Tableau on Republic Day in New Delhi was held on 26 January 2022 at 4 pm led by Senior Congress leader and former Union Minister B. Janardhan Poojary. Ratha Yatras from various taluks joined the Jatha at Lady Hill Circle, Mangaluru
Janardhan Poojary addressing the gathering, with tears in his eyes said, “I don’t have the strength to speak, I will Speak when I regain my Strength”.
In the ‘Swabhimana Jatha,’ no political flags were seen, except the participants in the Jatha wore yellow shawls and yellow flags only. Rallies from all taluks in Dakshina Kannada and Udupi also arrived at Kudroli temple, who had faith in Sri Narayana Guru’s ideologies and philosophy – ‘One Caste, One Religion, One God for Man’. Denying to include the tableau of Sree Narayana Guru is not only an injustice to the backward class community but is an injustice to our state, said a participant in the Jatha.
