- Entry was banned for more than 10 months due to corona epidemic
This news is no less than good news for the devotees of Rajadhiraj Baba Mahakal settled in India and abroad. Since the Corona period, the ban on devotees joining the Mahasaleshwara temple in the early morning at 4 am is going to be lifted from next week. Collector Ashish Singh has indicated this to Dainik Bhaskar. Though he did not give a date, but from next week, he has indicated to give admission to the devotees in Bhasmarti. Bhasmarti never ceased at the Mahakaleshwar temple. According to the tradition that has been going on for years, even in the Corona period, priests have been performing bhajramati at four in the morning. The entry of devotees into it was banned.
Decision had to be taken due to meeting of BJP MLAs
Administrative sources told Bhaskar that admission to devotees in Bhasmarti was ready to be given since Mahashivaratri. But in view of the training class of BJP MLAs going to be held in Ujjain from 12 February, the officials had to change their decision. Sources say that there is pressure from the government to include MLAs who are in training classes in the Bhasmarti. This is the reason that the prohibition on entry of devotees before the commencement of class can be lifted.
Sources said that recently a confidential meeting of administrative officials, Mahakal Temple Management Committee and BJP and RSS officials was held. In which it was decided that the intention of the government is to show disgust to the BJP MLAs who are in the training class. Responsibility has also been divided between BJP and RSS workers for this. How many devotees will be given admission daily in Bhasmarti, booking will be online or everything has been decided from the counter. But neither the administration officials nor the officials of the temple management committee are willing to speak anything on it.
