The banner has been put up on the premises of Sri Mahalingeshwara temple which comes under the Religious Endowment department. The Hindu religious fair will be held from January 14 to 18.

"Earlier, majority of stalls were put up by Muslims. This time, the management of allocating contracts for stalls has been given to the Bajrang Dal members," local said.
