Statue row: Bangalore University to retain both Buddha, Saraswati idols

Bengaluru: Bangalore University, that found itself in the middle of a controversy surrounding the idols of the Gautam Buddha and Goddess Saraswati, has decided to retain both on the premises.

In a meeting chaired by Bangalore University vice chancellor Venugopal KR, it was decided that a suitable place for the Buddha idol will be designated.

Venugopal had stated that there would be no change in the place designated for the Goddess Saraswati idol.
