Shivamogga district administration, on Friday, removed the saffron flag that was placed atop the national emblem near the KSRTC bus stand, allegedly by the organisers of Hindu Mahasabha Ganapati Samiti.
Ahead of the procession of Ganesha today, the organisers had decorated all prominent traffic junctions that fall along the route of the procession. They decorated circles with saffron buntings and flags. One saffron flag was placed on the statue of four lions, the national emblem, as well.
After criticism from netizens, #Shivamogga Deputy Commissioner R. Selvamani had the organisers of the right-wing group Hindu Mahasabha Ganapati Samiti take it down.
