This is the first time that the Chief Minister visited the Pandit Loishang at Palace compound since the conflict between the Pandit Loishang members and the BJP members over the construction of structures related to the Govindaji temple on October 24. The Chief Minister reportedly met the members of the Pandit Loishang (Maru Loishang Kanba Lup) and discussed the problem and issues. After listening to the grievances of the members of the Maru Loishang Kanba Lup, the Chief Minister assured them that the structures constructed inside the Pandit Loishang premises for keeping the wheels of the Rath yatra (Konung Kang) will be given to the Pandit Loishang for utilization of the indigenous religion purposes.
