The politics on the religious faith of people has intensified on banning Chhat Ghats by Kejriwal Government and BMC. Delhi government has already banned the Chhat Ghat, and now BMC (The Bombay Municipal Corporation (BMC)) has issued an order to ban Chhath Puja on the bank of natural water reservoirs of Mumbai on Tuesday. BJP’s party workers gathered in front of Chief Minister Kejriwal’s residences to protest the Chhat puja ban and demanded to lift the ban on conducting Chhath Puja on river banks, temples, and other public places.

Purvanchal Morcha President Kaushal Mishra calls Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal as ‘anti-Purvanchal‘ and said that this ban has hurt the religious sentiments of people of Bihar and Purvanchal living in Delhi. BJP’s Delhi unit vice-president Dinesh Pratap Singh said that the Aam Aadmi Party government should withdraw its ‘Tughlaqi Decree‘ within the next 24 hours; otherwise, the people of Purvanchal will teach it a lesson at the appropriate time.
Singh questioned Kejriwal’s decision; asking him why he has opened weekly markets, malls, and liquor shops and allowed DTC buses to run at full capacity, why is he discriminating against lakhs of Purvanchal people by banning Chhath Mahaparva.

He further added, ‘Just as Chief Minister Kejriwal wrote a letter to the Center and proposed to ban Chhath Puja, in the same way, he should write a letter to the Lieutenant Governor and send a proposal to organize Chhath Mahaparva with proper management. We will then ask Lt. Governor to organize Chhat puja.
