Ranchi: Coronavirus infections have once again started increasing rapidly across the country. Due to this, lockdown conditions are once again being imposed in many states including Maharashtra. 

Section 144 is being imposed in many states. In the midst of all this, the government led by Hemant Soren in Jharkhand has banned Ram Navami processions.

Politics in Jharkhand has heated up over this issue. This year, the Hindu festival of Ram Navami is on April 21.

BJP MP from Godda Nishikant Dubey has expressed dissatisfaction over this decision of the Jharkhand government. 

“Despite all the opposition, when I opened the temple of Babadham Deoghar with orders from the Supreme Court, I will also go to the Supreme Court to take out the procession of Ramnavami all over Jharkhand,” he said. 

“After fighting Chief Minister Hemant Soren on this matter, me and my family are fighting 22 cases and also winning by the grace of Baba. God helps the courageous man,” he added.

The Hemant Soren government of Jharkhand has issued many guidelines regarding the increasing cases of coronavirus. Under this, instructions were given not to play Holi in public places. Apart from this, public events and processions of Sarhul, Shab-e-Barat, Navratri, Ram Navami and Easter and all other festivals have also been banned. 

But the BJP insists that the Jharkhand government must allow Ram Navami processions.
