Karnataka Chief Minister B S Yediyurappa on Wednesday said mosques and churches too are likely to be opened for public from June 1 along with temples and that his government was awaiting permission from the Centre in this connection.
The Chief Minister also said he has written to the Prime Minister Narendra Modi on reopening of hotels in the state.
On Monday, Karnataka had announced opening up the temples in the state from June 1 for devotees, becoming the first state to allow public in shrines ever since the coronavirus-induced lockdown was enforced on March 25.
“Temples will open from June 1… for hotels and others we want permission from Delhi, from the Prime Minister. I have written a letter (and) the expectation is that mostly we will get permission,” Yediyurappa told reporters here.
“Once we say temples can open, churches and mosques should also open; there will be no restrictions on them.”
