Bhubaneswar: Sevayats fight in Lingaraj temple on Monday has led to the stoppage of daily rituals since yesterday, said reports.

Since yesterday, after the ritual of Badasinghar all the other rituals have been stopped. Concerns have been raised by the devotees, relating to the matter.

The controversy is said to be around the Paita Lagi ritual of Lord Lingaraj in Bhubaneswar. There was a conflict between two sets of servitors of Lingaraj temple since yesterday. The two conflicting groups were Puja Pandas and Badu Nijoga.

Daily rituals had not been performed nor had prasad been cooked for Lord Lingaraj the ruling deity of Bhubaneswar.

The conflict allegedly arose due to the ‘Paita Lagi’ ritual and relating to this the puja has been stopped. The said disagreement is yet to be resolved. Dissatisfaction has been seen from all quarters regarding the fact that the rituals have been ignored.

The matter had been brought under the notice of Odisha Hindu Religious Endowment Commission for being heard.

The same conflict had arisen in August last year and had been solved after almost two days during which the Lord had gone without food or any rituals.
