Ujjain: Shri Mahakaleshwar Temple Management Committee raised fee for bhasmarti which is being opposed by many devotees and common people.

According to the new tariff, on an online application for bhasmarti, fee of Rs 100 will have to be paid by the devotee. But on offline application one has to pay Rs 10 from April 1. Protesting the hike, a memorandum in the name of collector was handed over in the leadership of Vivek Yadav of the Congress with his supporters with a warning of agitation if the hikes were not rolled back.

On this occasion party workers shouted anti-government slogans and appealed not to commercialise religious places. Media in-charge Rajesh Tiwari said Arun Verma, Rajesh Bathli, Sanchit Sharma, Ambar Mathur and many other party workers were present on this occasion.
