Ujjain (Madhya Pradesh): Devotees who reached Vaishy Tekri on Buddha Purnima on Thursday expressed anger over the colonies being built around the Tekri and encroachment. The Bharatiya Buddhist Mahasabha said that if the encroachment occurring here is not stopped soon, the people of Buddhist community will come out with a protest movement.

Mahasabha president Ramdas Jawade, Manoj Nagdeve and Jyoti Bhele said that two Buddhist stupas are located in Kanipura at a distance of about 5 km from the city. It is known as Vaishy Tekri.
