BENGALURU: Prime Minister Narendra Modi will arrive in the state on a one-day visit on October 29. He is set to participate in a spiritual fete being organised by Vedanta Bharathi, a branch of Sringeri Shankara Peetha at Palace Grounds. He will also be the chief guest at the golden jubilee celebrations of the ‘coronation’ of Veerendra Heggade as the administrator of Dharmasthala Manjunatha religious and social service institutions on the same day.

More than 50,000 people including thousands of school children are scheduled to take part in the mass recitation of ‘Soundarya Lahari’ hymns at Palace Grounds, which will mark culmination of the programme organised by Vedanta Bharathi to spread the values of moral ethics, religious harmony and spiritual enlightenment in Bengaluru and other parts of the state.

Modi is expected to address the gathering, said V Manjunath, coordinator of the event. “The Prime Minister’s office has confirmed Modi’s visit, however we are yet to receive the schedule of his programme,” he added.

In Dharmasthala, Modi will visit Sri Manjunatha Temple and take part in Dharmasthala Rural Development Programme in Ujire. Sources said Modi will distribute Pradhan Mantri Micro Units Development & Refinance Agency (MUDRA) loans for many beneficiaries on the occasion.
