Bellary: Prasannanandapuri of Valmiki Gurupeeth on Saturday said the BJP government must construct Maharshi Valmiki temple along with Ram Mandir in Ayodhya.

Addressing presspersons he said, “BJP government came to power by using Lord Ram’s name, they have made Lord Ram as their icon. Along with Ayodhya Ram Mandir, they should also construct Maharshi Valmiki temple, because the Valmiki community is being used for vote bank politics.”

He further added, “On Feb 9, the jatra mahotsav of Maharshi Valmiki will be held at Rajanahalli, Harihar. The chief minister should announce hiking quota to Valmiki before Feb 9, failing which, the chief minister will have to face the consequences.”

“The Valmiki community has been fighting for the hike in reservation under Scheduled Tribes from 3% to 7.5% for the past 10 years or so. The government has recently constituted a commission to look into our demand. If the commission recommends for hike in quota, the chief minister should make an official announcement on the same by Feb 9,” the seer said.
