A tense situation prevailed at the entrance of ISKCON temple complex at Mahalakshmi Layout where hundreds of activists of the Bangalore unit resisted Mumbai team attempts to enter it.

The arguments between the two groups led to traffic blockade on the road, which has become a narrow in the wake of the on-going works for Metro Rail.

Police intervened and brought the situation under control. The Mumbai team returned following protests.

Madhupandit Das objected to the Mumbai ISKCON attempts to gain control of the city unit as the matter was still pending before the Supreme Court.

    The way Mumbai ISCON charging Bangalore ISCON vindicates DK Shivakumar's(Cong Working President of Karnataka PCC) allegation of real estate business by Bangalore ISCON.This way both ISCONS made mockery of democratically affiliated organisation to the Karnataka Society Act.

    HC of Karnataka turned down Bangalore ISCON's plea of independent entity and granted permission to oversee or form a supervisory committee above Bangalore ISCON.Also Bangalore ISCON is branch of Mumbai ISCON which has power to control the activities.Therefore both parties solve their contention issue amicably so that devotees of Krishna may have a sigh of relief.
