AO appointed to Karinjeshwara Temple again

Posted on Feb 11th, 2010 and filed under General.

BANTWAL: The Sate High Court which vacated the stay which it had earlier issued in favor of the management of the famous Sri Karinjeshwara Temple here, has now issued an order appointing an administrative officer to the temple once again.
The state government had recently ordered appointment of the Bantwal Tahsildar CN Manjunath as the administrative officer of the temple in the backdrop of the expiry of the term of the erstwhile management led by Jinaraj Ariga, Managing Trustee. However, Ariga had moved the High Court challenging the government order and was successful in securing a stay and had even begun preparations for the temple annual festival. But, now the temple has once again come under the government control following the vacation of the stay order.
