Vijender Gupta inspects Chhath Ghats with BJP Kar Sewaks
BJP Delhi Pradesh President Shri Vijender Gupta inspected many Chhath Ghats prepared for the worship of the Sun God today. He directed the BJP workers to start camps at the Chhath Ghats in their respective areas and extend every possible help to the families coming for Chhath Pooja.
Shri Gupta has once again demanded Delhi Government that respecting the sentiments of 40 lakh Poorvanchalis living in Delhi it should declare the 19th November the day of Chhath Pooja as a public holiday so that the people may be able to worship the Sun God conveniently. It may be mentioned that with ‘Nahay Khaya’, the Chhath Pooja started from today itself. Tomorrow, ‘Kharna’ will be observed in which the Kul Devta is worshipped.
Day after tomorrow the main festival will be celebrated. On this day the worshippers pay obeisance to the setting Sun God standing in the water bodies. After that they stay whole night on the Ghats singing religious songs. On 20th November the worshippers shall again pay obeisance to the rising Sun God in the morning and after that return to their homes and end the 36 hours fast. This festival is observed for the welfare of families and the society.
