Potka, Aug 12: Huge rush of devotees and Kanwarias lined up since Sunday night outside Potka’s famous Shivalay Mukteshwardham Harina Mandir Jalabhishek on the auspicious last Monday, today, of the holy month of Sawan. As soon as the temple doors opened today in the morning, the devotees and Kanwarias among them rushed haphazardly to pour water on the Shiva Lingam on this auspicious day. The administration’s absence was the prime reason for the chaotic scene.
When Potka legislator Menka Sardar arrived to offer prayers, she was upset with the scenario and immediately rang up the local administration and directed them to reach the temple immediately. The team arrived at around 11 am and brought some order to the scene by forming queues for the devotees.
Other dignitaries who arrived at the Harina Mandir to offer prayers were local Zila Parishad member and JMM leader Sanjiv Sardar, Zila Parishad president Bulu Rani Singh, Zila Parishad member Chandravati mahto, JMM leader Sunil Mahto, Mukhiya Savitri Sardar and BJP leader Upendra Nath Sardar.
Various social organizations put up food and medical services kiosks for the devotees in the Mandir compound.
