Members of Madiga Christian community have urged the district administration to provide them a burial ground in Gadagi village. “Till now, we were burying our dead in a piece of land owned by a village resident, Chinnamma Dilipkumar. Now, the owners are planning to sell the land to another farmer. If that happens, we will have no burial ground,” they said. They suggested that the Government buy the land or allot them a separate land for burying the dead. A memorandum was submitted to the Government.
