Bargarh, October 11 (Odisha.in) Residents of Bargarh town are opposing the move of a local Marwari group to build ‘Agrasen Dham’ in a public place.
Gauntia of Bargarh donated the land for the construction of ‘Gopal Goshala’ or the shelter house of animals where the ‘Agrasen Maharaj Jayanty Samaroha Samity’ has now proposed to build the dham.
The proposal of building a dham on the one-acre plot near the government hospital surfaced two years ago.
However there was no progress because of local opposition. The land must be used for common purpose not for the people of one community, local wants.
Local residents have submitted a petition to the district collector requesting him not to allow the land for the use of one community.
