In Varanasi, the activists of the Gyanvapi Mukti Mahaparishad created a ruckus.

Workers of Gyanvapi Mukti Mahaparishad created a ruckus in Varanasi. He wanted to go to Shrikashi Vishwanath complex. The workers of Gyanvapi Mukti Mahaparishad were going on Tuesday morning to offer 51 kg Rudraksh garland to Kashi Vishwanath and Lord Nandi. Due to security reasons, the police administration stopped them at Maidagin. Angered by this, the workers started reciting Hanuman Chalisa sitting on the Maidagin itself.

There was a debate between the workers and the police for a long time about going to the temple. In the end, the police allowed the workers to offer Rudraksh garlands. Gyanvapi Mukti Parishad worker Raja Anand Jyoti Singh told that on the occasion of his birthday, he had made a garland of 51 kg Rudraksh to offer to Baba. While going to the temple, the police administration stopped him. Alleged that instead of cooperating, the administration started stopping us from going to the temple premises. Whereas we had clearly told that we are going to Kashi Vishwanath Dham and not the Gyanvapi complex.

After a long debate, the workers started talking about performing symbolic worship on the Maidagin itself and sitting and reciting Hanuman Chalisa. Seeing the matter increasing, the police of three police stations were called on the spot. In the end, after talking to the higher officials, the police administration allowed the workers to garland and have darshan of Rudraksh on certain conditions. All the workers also thanked the police commissioner and the policemen present on the spot and went to garland Kashi Vishwanath.
