Devotees of Lord Shiva poured in large numbers to seek His blessings during the customary Maha prasad hosted by senior BJP leader Jaiprakash Gupta and his brothers – Krishna Kumar, Ashok Kumar and Shiv Kumar Gupta – on Saturday at their residence in Nagpur on the occasion of Maha Shivratri.

The Gupta brothers, who reside at Hill Road, have been observing the rituals of rudrabhishek along with friends and family and the distribution of mahaprasad since years now. Krishna Kumar Gupta, who first discovered a shivlinga across his home, got a temple constructed there and the family has been celebrating Maha Shivratri there with grandeur each year.

Krishna Kumar Gupta said, “I knew there was a shivlinga across my house, which was almost 200 years old. So, I decided to build a temple around it. We faced many difficulties while getting the temple constructed but my mother always wanted us to build a temple at some point of time in our lives. I’m glad that happened.”

Guests including Punjab Governor Banwarilal Purohit, Union Minister Nitin Gadkari, Riteshwar Maharaj, Police Commissioner Amitesh Kumar, Municipal Commissioner Radhakrishnan B, Shiv Sena MP Krupal Tumane, former BJP MP Ajay Sancheti, noted industrialist Satyanarayan Nuwal, BJP MLA Krishna Khopde, BJP MLA Vikas Kumbare, Congress MLA Vikas Thackeray, MLC Parinay Fuke, former Congress MLA Ashok Dhawad, former BJP MLA Dr Milind Mane, former NCP MLC Prakash Gajhbiye, senior RSS functionaries Rajesh Loya and Shridhar Gadge, along with eminent bureaucrats, noted industrialists, social workers and family and friends were present, to name a few.
