HUBLI: Confusion continued at Moorusavir Mutt on Tuesday also as the issue of successor remained undecided.  Hundreds of supporters of Mallikarjun Swamiji of Kemappayya Swami Mutt of Ghataprabha continued their protest demanding that the Swamiji be made next pontiff.

They also went to the Registrar’s office of Hubli North and South and submitted their objection stating that no one, other than their Swamiji, should be made the head of the mutt.

They submitted the objection following a rumour that the present pontiff Gurusidda Rajogindra Swamiji would register Dingaleshwar Swamiji of Bale Hosur Mutt as his successor.

It is said that the devotees, in their objection letter, claimed that Mallikarjun Swamji should be allowed to ascend the throne according to the will signed by previous seer Gangadhara Jagadguru in 1998.

Confirming this to Express, Hubli North Sub-registrar M D Dummal said he has received the objection letter by the devotees of Ghataprabha and has asked them to seek a stay from the court on the proceedings of appointing the successor.

 “They cannot stop registering the successor to the mutt just with this objection letter,” he said.
