The Gop Seva Samiti has continued the tradition since 1932. Jalabhishek is performed continuously in nine pagodas. Last year another group got permission to do Jalabhishek, this time an argument has broken out. The Gop Seva Samiti argues that if the government does not allow a fresh start, then the other group was given a separate permit for Jalabhishek last year.

The officials say the administration should review their records and accordingly the Gop Seva Samiti should be allowed to perform jalabhishek. Only the people of the committee take the flag of the Yaduvanshi community and take part in the Jalabhishek Yatra. The other group tries to make the family tradition public.At the same time, the other side also applied for Jalabhishek’s permission this year. Chandravanshi Gop Seva Samiti President Lalji Yadav said efforts are being made to give political color to the Jalabhishek tradition. The decision on Jalabhishek will be made in a meeting with the police administration on July 22nd.

After reports of SP President Akhilesh Yadav’s visit to Jalabhishek Yatra, a delegation from Gop Seva Samiti met him in Lucknow. He was told that he was invited to the Jalabhishek family and not to the event organized by the Yaduvanshi community. According to this information, Akhilesh postponed the program to attend the Jalabhishek Yatra on July 26th.
