Ujjain : Niranjani akhada has demanded immediate demolition of a wall encroaching upon the land where the Sadhus of Anand and Niranjani akhada will settle during the upcoming Simhastha fair. Sadhus of the akhada made it clear that the wall of the Mohankheda Jain trust encroaching upon the fair land of the Anand Akhada will be demolished at any cost, now it is up to the administration to their work.
The fair manager of the Niranjani akhada Mahant Ravindrapuri who recently reached the city for making the necessary preparations of the akhada told media persons that Anand Akhada and Niranjani akhada play in tandem and the wall of Mohankheda Jain trust is clearly encroaching upon the camping land of the Anand Akhada. Letters regarding the problems have already been written to the fair administration. Even the divisional commissioner had ordered for the demolition of the wall but connivance of the officials is holding the wall at its place. Mahant Puri said if administration fails to perform its duty we will raze the wall with a JCB. He said once again we will write to the Simhastha Fair Authorities for demolishing the wall on Monday.
The sanyasi said in Simhastha fair of 2004, a similar attempt was made by the community persons by building a temple on the land allotted to one of our sadhu Balakanand Giri, at that time the sadhu had spared them and allowed the temple to exist on condition that no further construction will be made. But the trustees despite knowing the fact and condition that Mela act does not allows permanent construction over the fair reserved land, continued the construction and now have erected a wall. Not only the wall is illegal it is covering the akhada land is working as divider between the Anand and Niranjani Akhada. It is worth noting that the Anand Akhada and Niranjani akhada always work together and perform rituals in parallel.
