BJP team inspects Chhath Ghats
Thousands of BJP workers will start Kar Sewa tomorrow to provide facilities to the Chhath worshippers
Under the leadership of BJP Delhi Pradesh President Shri Vijender Gupta, the BJP workers alongwith Co-Incharge Rameshwar Chaurasia, Pradesh Poorvanchal Cell Incharge Dr. S.C.L. Gupta and Convenor Abhey Verma will start Karsewa at 9.30 a.m. tomorrow at Sonia Vihar Pushta-I.
In this Karsewa hundreds of BJP workers will take part. Arrangements have been made to provide amenities to the Chhath worshippers on behalf of BJP Delhi Pradesh. The workers will be present at the Ghats on the 1st day of Sunworship and will provide all kinds of facilities to the worshippers. Pradesh President told that the Karsewa started by the BJP workers will continue till the completion of Chhath Pooja.
On the other hand Delhi Pradesh Co-Incharge Shri Rameshwar Chaurasia inspected the preparations for Chhath worship at Haiderpur Canal passing through Wazirpur Industrial Area of Delhi. Lakhs of Poorvanchalis of Shalimar Bagh , Shakurpur, Rithala, Rohini, Badli, Kamla Nagar and Wazirpur Industrial area celebrate Chhath festival on the Ghats on the bank of Haiderpur Canal. Expressing their dissatisfaction on the preparations for Chhath worship, the BJP team told that the responsibility of construction and cleaning of Ghats is of Delhi Government, but the Government is not discharging its responsibility.
In view of the bad conditions of the Ghats, the BJP workers have themselves started Karsewa so that the Chhath worshippers may not face any difficulty. Shri Rameshwar Chaurasia told that the Flood Control Department of Delhi Government and Pilgrimage Development Committee should have completed this work in advance. But the Delhi Government has neither constructed the Ghats nor made arrangements for sanitation and lighting. SarvaShri Sanjeev Sharma, Councillor Suresh Bhardwaj and Subhash Pandey etc. were present with Shri Chaurasia.
Shri Chaurasia told that MCD has allotted 50 lakh rupees to provide facilities to 40 lakh Poorvanchalis of Delhi. With the help of this fund, the Ghats will be made more beautiful and safe. Similarly the Delhi Government should have respected the sentiments of Poorvanchalis and provided all the facilities through the Government for the sunworshipers for which they are entitled.
