more-in

Junior seer of Siddaganga Mutt, Siddalinga Swami, said that reports regarding the ill health of the senior seer of Siddaganga Mutt, Shivakumara Swami, in the media were false.

Addressing a press conference on the premises of the mutt in Tumakuru on Monday, he said there is nothing to worry about the health of the seer. He is being treated as per the direction of Dr. Ravindra of BGS Hospital in Bengaluru and neurosurgeon, Dr. Venkataramana N.K. The doctors of Siddaganga hospital are taking a lot of care of the seer. He reiterated that there is no need to panic.

Anybody who has undergone an operation needs time to recover. As the seer is 111 years old, he needs more time to recover. Since there is infection in the lungs, his recovery is slow, he said.

BJP State unit president B.S. Yeddyurappa, who visited the seer on Monday, said he is healthy and devotees need not be anxious as the seer would recover in a week.
