Mangaluru, Mar 30, 2018: The inaugural function of the Ullal Srinivas Mallya Circle at Padil which was scheduled to be held on March 29, Thursday stands cancelled in the wake of the enforcement of the poll code of conduct. The Circle has been constructed by the Vishwa Konkani Kendra and Konkani Bhasa and Sanskriti Pratishtan.
Though the programme was scheduled to be held at 5 pm on Thursday, the district administration officials who arrived there an hour earlier, requested the organisers to postpone the inaugural in view of the poll code of conduct.
When the organisers made it clear that it was a private function and also appealed to permit the programme in the absence of any political leaders, the officials declined and requested to cancel the event. The officials also ensured removal of the banner put up at the place.
Basti Vaman Shenoy, Founder of Vishwa Konkani Kendra has said that the inauguration would be held after the election.
