Kar sevaks arrive at Dwarka for darshan

RAJKOT: Thousands of kar sevaks arrived at the famous Dwarka temple on Monday for darshan after performing kar seva at the Narmada dam site. Local authorities were caught unawares as they had no idea that kar sevaks would land at Dwarka. The temple authorities had made special security arrangements as it was the seventh anniversary of the Babri Masjid demolition.

The kar sevaks performed the morning aarti and offered prayers. The temple authorities had a tough time cleaning up the premises as it was littered with food packets.

The kar sevaks boarded the Saurashtra Mail from Vadodara and arrived in Rajkot on Sunday afternoon. They were found travelling without tickets.

Some railway officials tried to book them for travelling ticketless, but better sense prevailed as there was a fear that they might go on a rampage at the station.

Railway authorities, later, maintained that fine was collected from only 13 kar sevaks while others were allowed to go scot free.

A large contingent of the city police was summoned as a precautionary measure.

They had come from Punjab, Haryana, and cities like Amravati, Chandrapur, Ramtek, Nagpur and towns of Uttar Pradesh.
