Politicians across party lines were present during the final rites. Karnataka CM HD Kumaraswamy, Minister DK Shivakumar, former CMs Siddaramaiah, BS Yeddyurappa were present during the final rites. The gates were closed at 3PM for darshan, an hour before the rituals of final rites began.

People from across the state are rushing to the Siddagnaga Mutt premises after the administration announced the news of passing away of Sri Shivakumara Swamiji yesterday. The revered seer died at the age of 111 after suffering from a prolonged illness.

The Swami, who was one of the oldest persons living in India, had been suffering from lung infection for the past few weeks. He had been in and out of hospitals over the last few years due to his advanced age.

Siddaganga Mutt has been turned into a fortress due to presence of ministers and VIPs. Only seers and VIPs are allowed near the samadhi.
