Mysore, Oct 8 (UNI) With hardly four days left for the inauguration of the Desara festival here, the district administration is under pressure following the ''political uncertainty'' in Karnataka and Siddaganga Seer Shivakumara Swamiji, pulling out of the inauguration citing poor health.

Seer Shivakumara Swamiji was scheduled to inaugurate the festival on October 12.

However, the government replaced Shivakumara Swamiji with Sri Adhi Chunchanagiri Seer Sri Balagangadharanatha Swamiji to inaugurate the festival, atop the Chamundi Hills.

The administration, trailing behind in the printing of invitations for the celebrations, completed the task today.
