Gadag: Tontadarya Mutt seer, Sri Siddalinga Swami(69) passed away today morning.

“He did not come out of his room till 9 am today and was later found that he had passed away,” said Chief Minister H D Kumaraswamy.

Swami followed Lingayat faith and was known pro- farmer, pro-Kannada and progressive views. He had slammed the Veerashaiva-Lingayat seers for opposing the Siddaramaiah-led government’s decision to grant minority status to Lingayats

A native of Korawad village in Vijayapura district, the swami was also known as ‘Kannadada Jagadguru’ (Seer of Kannada).

The mortal remains of the seer will be kept on the mutt premises to allow the public to pay homage. The funeral procession will begin from Tontadarya Mutt in Gadag at 11 a.m. on Sunday and the funeral will be held at 4 p.m.

Superintendent of Police K. Santosh Babu has said that additional police personnel were being deployed.
