Ujjain: Staffers bore the wrath of firebrand Union Minister Uma Bharti as they prevented her from entering the sanctum sanctorum at the Mahakaal temple in the city on the occasion of Mahashivratri on Friday.
A jittery senior officer tried to pacify the infuriated minister who sat on dharna for a while.
The Union Minister had reached the temple for paying obeisance. The temple administration, as a prior arrangement, had restricted entry inside the sanctum sanctorum, for one and all, to keep a check on the huge crowd that is usually seen at the temple during the festival.
She also sat on dharna on a wooden cot placed nearby.
As senior officers got the news, they rushed to placate the anguished Minister and ensured hassle-free darshan for her.
"Being a saint, Uma Bharti can't be prevented from entering garbh griha. Some kind of confusion led to the situation," said Ujjain collector Sanket Bhondwe.
An upset Bharti responding to media queries on the incident and came down heavily on the police-administration.
She had sought permission for jalabhishek from the head of Mahanirvani Akhara, Bharti claimed.
