Shivakumara Swamiji’s funeral: Here is why PM Modi won’t be in Tumakuru
PM Narendra Modi expressed his heartfelt condolences through a series of tweets and remembered the time he got blessings from the seer Shivakumara Swamiji in Tumakuru
Tumakuru: Shivakumara Swamiji also known as the ‘Walking God’ of Siddaganga Mutt breathed his last at 11.44 AM, on Monday (January 21) at the mutt hospital in Tumakuru, Karnataka.
It was earlier reported that Prime Minister Narendra Modi will travel to Tumakuru on Tuesday to pay his last respects to the 111-year-old seer. But the latest reports claim that lakhs of devotees will arrive to pay their last respects and it is very difficult to make special security arrangements.
Due to security reasons, PM Modi will not come to Tumakuru. But he has expressed his condolences and hailed the contributions of the seer.
He expresses his condolences through a series of tweets.
