Mysore/Mysuru: Members of various organisations staged a dharna near Deputy Commissioner’s Office here today demanding re-installation of freedom fighter Sangolli Rayanna’s Statue in Belagavi.

They demanded action against culprits for desecration of Rayanna’s statue and wanted the State Government to direct the Belagavi District Administration to re-install it in the same place.
