Ujjain : Second Sawari of Lord Mahakal of the auspicious Kartik month and the Sawari of Hari Har Milan will be taken out on Monday and Tuesday respectively. But the traditional route of the Sawari is still blocked at Mahakal Square as PHE department has not completed the laying work of new pipeline.
Shri Mahakaleshwar Temple Management Committee (SMTMC) has written a letter to Additional Municipal Commissioner Vishal Singh Chauhan regarding speedy completion of the work and to clear off the route. PHE has been laying new water pipeline connecting new filtration plant built at the Gaughat to the main water pipeline of Gambhir Dam running under Dhaba Road area for upcoming Simhastha Fair – 2016. Road near overhead water tank at Mahakal Square to Chaubis Khamba Mata Temple has been blocked from last few days due to laying of pipeline.
In such kind of circumstances, how Sawari will pass through the area has become major concern for the SMTMC as hundreds of devotee’s throngs in both the religious processions every year. Despite repeated attempts of Free Press none of the concerned UMC officials were available for their comments. However one Sub Engineer of PHE present at the spot informed that we are working day and night for completion of the work and likely we will complete it till Monday morning.
