Two days after erecting a temporary structure near the controversial Bhojshala in Dhar, Hindu Jagaran Manch on Tuesday installed the divine flame from the famous Sharada peeth at Maihar in Satna district brought by a team of devotees.

Amid drum beats, blowing of conch shells and chanting of hymns, the akhand jyoti was brought by a 60- member team which had embarked upon the journey to Maihar on January 12 together with a chariot designed on the pattern of Bhojshala.

The akhand jyoti was brought in a grand procession into the city and people offered prayers even as buildings were decorated with saffron colour and saffron flags adorned the houses to welcome the flame which was later installed in the makeshift sheds built at Moti Bagh square.

State coordinator of Hindu Jagaran Manch, Radheshyam Yadav, claimed that both the Centre and the state government are making sincere and serious efforts to bring the idol of Goddess Bagdevi Saraswati, reportedly kept at a London Museum now, for worship here.

It would not be a tough job to bring the idol in view of these efforts, he said, adding "now it is necessary for the Hindu samaj to become conscious for early installation of saraswati idol at bhojshala".

He said the akhand jyoti would keep burning at the makeshift temple till the idol is brought from London and installed at Bhojshala.

Akhand  jyoti was welcomed among others by local MLA Jaswan Singh Rathore, HJM district president Arvind Kant Bordia and coordinator Gopal Sharma. Bhoomi  Poojan for the makeshift temple had been held on January 10.
