The protesters alleged that they were pushed out of the temple during aarti while the JDA said the structure was sealed because it was built illegally.

They demanded to unseal the temple and burnt an effigy of JDA vice-chairman Shavan.

is a city of temples and we don’t care about any government, whether it is the government in the association of BJP,” he said.

The protesters alleged that the temple was sealed to create disturbance in Jammu.

“If it was built near a road, where were JDA and its team (until now)? Why it was not stopped when the temple was built. But now it is being sealed,” Sarveshwar Singh Pujari, a resident of Trikutanagar said.

Additional Deputy Commissioner of Jammu, Arun Manhas, who reached the spot to pacify the protesters suggested that the JDA open the Mandir immediately.

“I have requested the vice-chairman of the JDA to open the seal of the Mandir. Then they can hold probe as to how this temple was constructed. Let him prove it,” Manhas told reporters here.
