The Basant Panchmi festival at Bhojshala passed off peacefully on Saturday, with Janata Party president Subramanian Swamy stating that he would bring back the idol of goddess Waghdevi (Saraswati), now in a London museum, in 2013.

“We are committed to bring back the idol of Waghdevi from London and the law too is in our favour. I have sent two persons to the U.K., who have confirmed that the statue is in London,” Mr. Swamy told presspersons. — PTI
