Shobha Yatra taken out in Chikmagalur

Correspondent


Datta Jayanti celebrations marked

Turnout for yatra low


CHIKMAGALUR: A Shoba Yatra was taken out here on Sunday as part of the three-day Datta Jayanti celebrations. The yatra, which commenced at the Kamadhenu Ganapathi temple, concluded at the Bolarameshwara temple after passing through the main thoroughfares of the city.

An idol of Dattatreya placed on a decorated tractor was taken out in the procession.

A group of women singing devotional songs led the procession. They were followed by hundreds of saffron clad devotees dancing to the beat of drums. The police were present in strength to ensure law and order.

The turnout was much lower than that witnessed in previous years. Troupes of folk artistes were conspicuous by their absence.

Necessary arrangements had been made for the Datta Jayanti celebrations in Chikmagalur and at Datta Peeta in Bababudangiri.

Vikaas Kumar, Superintendent of Police, told presspersons that 141 officers and 1,224 personnel had been deputed for security arrangements.
