Yudhvir Sethi restores sanctity of ancient temple

On the pressing demand of people of Pacci Dhakki locality of old Jammu city with regard to encroachment in an ancient temple in the area, Vice-President BJP Yudhvir Sethi today visited the Radha-Krishan temple and took the initiative of getting the unauthorized construction stopped.
The people of the area brought to the notice of Yudhvir Sethi that the temple which was managed by the Dharmarth Trust manages the temple but from the last some time unauthorized constructions were going on in the temple complex. Certain unscrupulous elements were indulging in encroachment in the temple.
However with the timely intervention of the senior leader the situation was saved and hundreds of supporters and local people managed to demolish the lintel that had been laid over the rooms.
Yudhvir Sethi was furious over the activities of the Trust allowing unlawful activities in the complex and questioned the local administration for giving permission to such illegal activities. He not only demolished the lintel but also installed a new Murti of Mata kali in the room and warned the trust and authorities from allowing any misuse of the temple and its property in future.
He said that this was an ancient temple of Radha Krishna in the area and also a heritage temple which should have been preserved by the trust.
Meanwhile people have hailed the efforts of Yudhvir Sethi for saving the ancient temple from going into the hands of land grabbers and gamblers and reposed faith in him for coming to peoples rescue from time to time.
