Pramod Muthalik, the leader of the Sriram Sena, and his supporters set up the Lord Ganesha idol while chants of ancient hymns were being sung in the background.
Muthalik said at the Pooja Pandal said that the prayers in accordance with the law. The people of Hubballi and all of north Karnataka are delighted by our Pooja, which we completed despite some miscreants’ attempts to stop them. Muthalik described the day as “historic” since it realised the Hindu community’s long-cherished goals.
He claims that the district administration has given permission for pooja to be performed there for three days. To prevent any unfortunate incidents, extensive security precautions were undertaken at the Idgah field.
