Andhra Pradesh Government’s decision to cancel the public celebration of Vinayaka Chaviti has triggered a row in the state. BJP which does not let go of such opportunities has called for state-wide protests against this decision of the Government.
BJP Leader Byreddy Rajasekhar Reddy made critical comments about CM Jagan Mohan Reddy for taking this decision. “I can not stop wondering if Jagan is the Chief Minister or Chief Pastor of Andhra Pradesh. There is no Corona on YSR Vardanti. But it comes for Vinayaka Chaviti?,” Byreddy criticized.
Meanwhile, YSR Congress says that the restrictions are imposed because of the increasing cases. The party also says that there are clear instructions from the Central Government to impose restrictions on public gatherings in the upcoming festival seasons and the Government is just adhering to them.
Meanwhile, BJP President Somu Veerraju said Hinduism is under threat in Jagan’s rule and we will also see arrests in the future for celebrating festivals.
