MENDHAR : Yatri Bhawan at Hanuman Mandir in Mendhar for which the foundation stone was laid by ex- Chief Minister and president National Conference Dr. Farooq Abdullah on June 15, 2013 in presence of NC provincial president and former MLA Devender Singh Rana and former MLA Mendhar Javed Rana, has finally been removed off because of awaiting the commencement of its construction work. It should be reminded that the work on this Yatri Bhavan was approved by the local former MLA Javed Rana who availed the opportunity of getting the foundation stone laid by the party chief and head Dr. Farooq Abdullah but in the absence of further activity, the foundation stone of the Bhawn was remained as a show piece only for years so far. The Sanathan Sabha,s heads said about the removal of the foundation stone away that the people of the area had treated it as a joke with the devotees.
As every one is known that this Hanuman Temple being an eminent historical place, is visited by a large number of devotees and there is no space for organising functions, this Yatri Bhavan was said to be the necessity of the visitors.
Members of Hanuman Mandir Committee and Sanathan Dharam Sabha, said that Dr. Farooq Abdullah and other leaders of National Conference in presence of former MLA Javed Rana of that time had visited the Yatri Bhawan. They laid foundation stone and then forgot after befooling miniority community of the area.
“Many years had passed, foundation stone remained a stone showpiece. At that time Javed Rana was the MLA of Mendhar who had promised with the Hindu community that they will be given a Yatri Bhawan here but it could not be built till date. So it was a serious joke which had played by Nc leaders with the Minority Community and now we have not been able to tolerate more so in the presence of our Sabha,s heads, turned aside the Foundation Stone” said Sabha,s heads. The Foundation Stone was removed away in presence of Manhant Shri Karan Baba Hanuman Mandir Mendhar ,
