Ujjain : One day brainstorming session of Shad Darshan Sadhu Mandal, to dwell over the lacunas in Simhastha fair preparations, will be organised here on January 19. State president of the Mandal Computer Baba on Monday while interacting with the reporters told that around 500 saints from across the country will participate. The brainstorming session will be organised at the Char Dham temple between 12 noon to 4 pm. He claimed that the pace and quality of the Simhastha mela related development works is subpar and despite repeated pleas the stake-holders have failed to listen.

Mandal’s General Secretary Mahant Naveenanand said the three main agendas of the session will be dreadful condition of Kshipra, availability of Narmada water and developmental works needed in the local ashrams. He said the government is making a mistake by forgetting sadhu, sanyasis and saints who does not belong to any akhada. He said the State government is providing each of the 13 akhadas a huge amount of money in the name of developing akhada structure, but in reality it is a move of appeasement by the corrupt government. He said the local Sadhus remain here for life, as they take oath to dedicate their life to a certain spot, but the blind government has failed to provide even services of drinking water and toilets to them.

Computer Baba said till date the condition of holy Kshipra has not changed and the saints with appeasement have stopped chasing the government. He charged that the Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chauhan has not fulfilled even a single promise related to saints community he had made during past 10 years. The Baba even said he should get a prize for telling lies. On being asked whether some of the BJP leaders are provoking him silently, for a campaign against the CM, he retaliated and said he is working for Dharma and not for any party. On January 19 the saints will discuss in Simhastha Chintan Shivir and later will produce a report to the government.
