The Chandikeswarar Nayanar Narpani Sangam has urged the district administration to hold the car festival for presiding deity of Kottai Sangameswarar temple here.

In a petition submitted to Collector M. Karunagaran during the grievance meeting held recently, sangam president D. Suresh Babu said that the permission for the car festival had been denied by the Hindu Religious and Charitable Endowments Department which cited the police’s apprehensions on law and order problems.

However, Mr. Suresh Babu said that the car festival was held recently for Lord Muruga of the same temple recently with no problems.
