DHARWAD: Social Welfare Minister Narayanaswamy said that the state government is committed to ban the Made Made Snana ritual being practiced in several temples in the state.

He told the media here on Tuesday that the issue was discussed at length during the Assembly session.“Taking serious note of  the appeal made by Law and Parliamentary Affairs Minister Sureshkumar to ban such practices, the government will shortly ban this practice,” he asserted.  Refusing to comment on a few seers favouring such practices, Narayanaswamy said that his department is striving hard to abolish such inhuman practices in society.

The minister disclosed that the government has decided to hold an open discussion in Bangalore shortly,

wherein elected representatives, seers, social workers and the general public will participate. The deliberations of the discussion will be implemented, he added.

The minister added that the government had approached an IT firm to develop software for online distribution of scholarships. “Officials have been urged to disburse scholarships soon.”
