Shah gets to meet junior seer, while Rahul meets senior

Various inferences could be drawn from the fact that BJP national president Amit Shah and others could not seek the blessings of the seer of Kanaka Guru Peetha, Niranjanandapuri Swami, a prominent backward classes’ mutt, at Kaginele on Tuesday, as the seer was not available at the mutt.

On the other hand, AICC president Rahul Gandhi was “fortunate” to get the seer’s blessings as he was available at Belavadi Mutt in Shivamogga district, when Mr. Gandhi visited the mutt on Tuesday. As per schedule, Mr. Shah visited the Kanaka Guru Peetha in Kaginele before attending the convention of backward classes. In the absence of the seer, junior seer Amogha Siddeshwaranandapuri Swami accompanied by seers of Hosadurga and Tinthani mutts received the guests. Mr. Shah felicitated the junior seers and he was felicitated in return. Later, mutt sources clarified that since the meeting of Mr. Gandhi was scheduled much earlier, Niranjanandapuri Swami had gone to Belavadi mutt.
