Poor crowd management at Mahakaleshwar Temple garbha graha lot of inconvenience to visitors here on Saturday.
Heavy rush was noticed from wee hours on Saturday at the Mahakaleshwar Temple and garbha graha.
Irked by the mismanagement
, devotees raised slogans against the temple management. Six buseful of devotees from Gujarat and Karnataka were waiting for darshan in queue. Garbha graha visit was opened during noon hours, but Mahakaleshwar Temple Management Committee ( MTMC) did not have sufficient personnel to deploy inside garbha graha for managing the crowd. They had only two male and a female personnel inside garbha graha to control the crow. Lack of personnel brought heavy load on MTMC personnel deputed inside garbha graha and priests shouted at devotees as well as they were badly pulled and pushed by MTMC personnel to move out. On the other side, approachable pundits and priests brought their guests for adorning the Mahakaleshwar Jyotirlingam.
Presented devotees created issue when they found six persons were present with a priest and he performed pujan with them for 15 minutes.
Devotees agitation became deeper when they were pushed and thrown outside garbha graha by MTMC personnel without even touching Jyotirlingam.
Ravi Gupta, a devotee from Indore, said that pundits themselves brief the alt145 touch- significancealt39of Jyotirlingam though administrative personnel could not even arrange crowd of few people inside garbha graha. Devotees were questioning on administrative abilities as such sort of poor crowd management in renowned place of devotees were not expected.
Devotees were sad as even after waiting so long they were not allowed to even touch Jyotirlingam for a second.
Though it was a rushed day; either MTMC must think of deputing efficient alt145 garbha graha visit policiesalt39or it must train its personnel so that they at least learn a behavioural management with devotees.
MTMC could not make efficient arrangements for facilitation of convenient visit to Jyotirlingam. Queue management is a major problem inside garbha graha and it must be rectified by setting alt145 per devotee visit timealt39as little issues like this could increase the efficiency of administration and satisfaction of devotees, Gupta added.
