ANI Photo | “Go to nearby temples, offer prayers…”: Haryana CM after Govt denies permission for Brij Mandal Yatra

After the Haryana government denied permission for the Brij Mandal Yatra called by Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) in Nuh, Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar on Sunday said that people can visit nearby temples and offer prayers as it is the month of ‘Sawan’.
Haryana government authorities have denied permission for the Yatra and have imposed section 144 in the district citing apprehensions of disturbance of law and order expressed by local police as well as intelligence agencies.
“Looking at the kind of incident that happened there (Nuh) at the beginning of the month, it is the government’s duty to ensure that law and order in the area is maintained. Our police and administration have taken this decision that instead of carrying out a yatra (Braj Mandal Shobha Yatra), people should go to nearby temples and offer prayers. Permission for yatra is denied but people can go and offer prayers in nearby temples as it is Sawan month,” CM Khattar told reporters today.
He further said that respecting the people’s faith, permission will be given for ‘Jalabhishek’ in the temples.
“Everyone can perform Jalabhishek in their respective local temples as it is Sawan. Due to the incidents that took place in Nuh in the past, permission has not been given to travel to maintain law and order,” he added.
The Manohar Lal Khattar-led Haryana government on Saturday said that no permission has been granted to hold Braj Mandal Shobha Yatra in Nuh adding that section 144 has been imposed in the district.
Addressing the media, Nuh Deputy Commissioner Dhirendra Khadgata said, “We have denied the permission for yatra (Braj Mandal Shobha Yatra). Still, some have said they will conduct the yatra. We have imposed Section 144.
“Haryana Police on Saturday said that the internet services have been suspended in Nuh district till August 28.”
As a preventive measure, internet services have been suspended in Nuh from 12 noon on August 26 upto 11:59 pm on August 28,” an official statement said.
However, Vishwa Hindu Parishad said that they will bring out a Braj Mandal Jal Abhishek Yatra on August 28 in Nuh
