LLPians began their day with hitchhiking in Hubballi where they were asked to visit Chandramauli temple, Moorasavira math and Hazarat Sayed Fateh Shah Wali Darga without a spending a single penny from their pocket. LLPians walked, took auto rides for free and asked for a lift from people and completed the task. It was one of the exciting mornings for the LLPians.
