    Why no restrictions on kola and aata??? Everywhere there is aata & kola going on .. Even on the night of 10th April it was there in many places... Its also been planned in many places in coming days 2 different rules for people??? We shopkeepers, restaurateurs, Hoteliers must suffer where as religious people & folk artists can do anything? Total injustice...

    How, in the first place, a Kolagajja ceremony with such a huge crowd was allowed when a strict ban was in force? Good the trouble monger was arrested, though!

    People should not have thrashed him. Even now, please do not book any charges. When he becomes sober, he would repent and Koragajja would give him sadbuddi so that he becomes a reformed person again.
