Puttur, May 24, 2016: In an interesting development, the Executive Officer of Puttur’s famous Shree Mahalingeshwara Temple has served a notice to the temple priest Kuntaru Ravisha Tantri who had contested the assembly elections in Kasargod.
Though the notice was sent to the Tantri on May 13 the issue came to the notice of the outside world only on May 23, Monday.
In the notice, the Executive Officer has questioned why someone else could not be appointed to the position which Tantri enjoyed in the temple.
The notice has directed the priest to reply within 10 days. The priest who has admitted that he has received the notice said he still had time to reply to it.
He also reportedly told that the temple management had changed the priests even in the past citing different reasons.
