“I was thinking about appointing a priest to do rituals. But it may cost much. So, I am doing poojas on my own,” Shankar said. He also said that the footfall to his temple has been increasing day by day. At 150 people have visited NaMo temple in last three days, he told HT.
During the ongoing anti-citizenship amendment act protests, Shankar has been protecting the temple at night as protests are intensifying across the state. He believes that “CAA is good for the nation" and people are politicising the Law for their gain.
