Devotees returning empty-handed without having darshan

Who will improve the arrangements of Omkareshwar?

Chronicle Reporter, Khandwa/Omkareshwar
The crowd of devotees in the pilgrimage town Omkareshwar is not being controlled. People are flocking, but are upset due to the chaos and are cursing the chaos of the administration of Khandwa. The state and central governments are spending the budget on other religious places.

Big public representatives are not paying attention towards Omkareshwar. Planners are busy in Ujjain and Ayodhya only. Who will improve the arrangements in Omkareshwar? Devotees coming from every corner of the country are not able to have darshan even after standing in line for ten hours. Who is responsible for this? Despite this, there is looting everywhere. In view of the excessive crowd, the administration has ensured that no accident occurs. In view of this, a ban was imposed on boat operations. The sailors had closed their boats for two days. Boat operations started on Tuesday. The administration had to take this decision due to the excess number of boats.

Change the design of the sanctum sanctorum
The sanctum sanctorum of the temple will have to be given a new shape. Instead of the idol place of Shankaracharya, the design of the main sanctum sanctorum and Mamleshwar of the temple will have to be improved. Don’t those who run the country and the state see the chaos in Omkareshwar? Whatever plan comes in the city council becomes the center point of loot. Why doesn’t the administration make a new plan and give it to the state and central governments? Why is a budget like Mahakal Lok not being brought here? Why are God’s temples getting step-motherly treatment? At present, the states of Maharashtra and South have been cut off from the Omkareshwar railway line.
