The MLA named Siddharam Satlingappa was performing the pooja with his family members  reportedly as per the advice of his priest Siddeshwara.

Kukke  Temple’s in-charge CEO Ravindra said poojas are allowed to be performed only inside the temple premises  and not ouside. The MLA was later  summoned  to the  Subrahmanya Police Station where he furnished a bond stating  that henceforth  he would  not perform pooja outside the temple.

 There is information that two  more families from Shivamogga performing Navagriha pooja to ward off Sarpa Dosha by  making a homa kunda of sand were also prevented by the authorities.
