Speaking to media persons here on November 24, Monday, Shivaramu said the High Court ruling allowing the practice of Made Snana in its traditional form was very disappointing. He also made a request to the state government to pass an ordinance to  ban  Made Snana as well as Pankthi Bedha in temples.

L Shekhar, Dalit  activist, Shashidhar Sangapura and others were present. The Made Snana ritual would be held at  Kukke Shree Subrahmanya Temple on November 25,26 and 27 on account of Shashti.

Here it is worth mentioning that  the High Court which had in November 2012 allowed  a modified version of Made Snana named as Yede Snana as suggested  by the  then government, had in a recent ruling  decided to permit Made Snana  in its original form.
