Ujjain: Demanding that sawari of Mahakal Maharaj should be taken out with full splendor through the traditional route, the Congress workers gheraoed collector’s office in Ujjain on Wednesday.

Thousands of people are gathering across the entire state in the name of Jan Ashirwad Yatra and the administration is being a mute spectator. Flouting corona norms, many political events are being organised, but the ban on religious events exposes the hypocrisy of the BJP government.
In Ujjain, BJP MPs, ministers, MLAs talk about Hindutva but have failed to ensure that royal sawari of Mahakal Bhagwan is taken out on the traditional route.
