Ujjain, MP, Nov 2 (UNI) The Bharatiya Kalidas Parishad is in the process of submitting a plea in the Madhya Pradesh High Court against the Parishad not being made a part of the seven-day Akhil Bharatiya Kalidas Samaroh to get underway on November 21 in this ancient temple town.

''The Samaroh was organised under the Parishad's aegis for the past five decades,'' claimed Parishad General Secretary Shiv Sharma.

At a recent meeting of the state government's Culture Department in Bhopal, the Samaroh's Advisory Committee struck off the Parishad's name.

Human Resource Development Minister Arjun Singh, former chief minister Motilal Vora and the Vishva Hindu Parishad's Acharya Giriraj Kishore wrote to Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan urging the latter to include the Parishad's name.

President Pratibha Patil and former deputy premier L K Advani have been invited for the Samaroh but are yet to send their acceptance.
