Indore (Madhya Pradesh): The Congress, on Thursday, raised the issue of banned entry into the sanctum sanctorum of the Khajrana Ganesh Temple and appealed to the administration to revoke the ban on entry into the temple. The party also took objections to the charges being taken from the people entering the sanctorum.
Secretary of the Madhya Pradesh Congress Committee Nilabh Shukla said all restrictions of Covid-19 had already been lifted and entry into every temple sanctum sanctorum had been allowed except for Khajrana Temple.
“The government has revoked restrictions on entry into the sanctum sanctorum of the Mahakal Temple and from all other temples. These restrictions were imposed to control Covid spread, but, now, cases of Covid-19 have dropped to the lowest, but the administration hasn’t revoked the restriction in this temple,” Shukla said, adding, “Moreover, they’ve made it a source of income by taking charges from people to get entry into the sanctorum.”
The MPCC secretary added that the administration had been hurting people’s sentiments by taking charges for offering prayers in the temple.
