Ahead of the Ram Mandir’s ‘Pran Pratishtha’ ceremony, the Assam State BJP is set to conduct various programmes across the State, which will start on January 18.
The decisions were taken in a crucial meeting of the State BJP in the presence of Assam Chief Minister Dr Himanta Biswa Sarma, State BJP president Bhabesh Kalita, MPs, MLAs, office bearers, district presidents, and prabharis held at the State BJP headquarters in Guwahati on January 11.
Assam Chief Minister Dr Himanta Biswa Sarma said that various programmes have been taken by the State BJP to celebrate Bhagwan Sri Ram Pran Patistha.
Assam Chief Minister Dr Himanta Biswa Sarma said, “Today, a meeting of the State BJP was held where the MPs, MLAs, district presidents, prabhari, saha-prabharis, office bearers, BJP Yuva Morcha’s district presidents and state BJP president Bhabesh Kalita presided over the meeting and we discussed the programmes for the next week. In next week, a few party programmes will be implemented. From January 18 to January 21, we (BJP Karyakartas) will observe Swachh Tirtha Utsav in various religious sites across the State.”
He further said that on January 22, the historic moment of the Ram Mandir consecration will be seen through big screens installed there.
“On the January 22 evening, we, the BJP Karyakartas, will give Sarai to the Aai-Matri (Group of women) in each Namghar (Prayer House) of the State, and I appeal to all Aai-Matri to celebrate the Ram Mandir consecration at all Namghars, temples by performing Naam-Kirtan. After the Ram Mandir Pran Pratistha, on January 25, BJP Karyakartas will conduct bike rallies in each assembly constituency of the State with a minimum of 1000 bikes and all bikers will have to wear helmets. On January 21 and 22, the BJP Karyakartas will try to illuminate the market and other areas,” Dr Himanta Biswa Sarma said.
He further said that January 22 has been declared a dry day. “By taking these programmes, the BJP Karyakartas are trying to celebrate the Bhagwan Sri Ram Pran Pratishtha. I will also see the historic moment by sitting in a temple,” the Assam Chief Minister said after the meeting.
Criticising the Congress leaders who declined to attend the Bhagwan Sri Ram Pran Pratishtha programme, the Assam Chief Minister said that, by boycotting the Bhagwan Sri Ram Pran Pratishtha Mahotsav, the Congress has once again proved that they are anti-Hindu.
“When the Somnath Mandir Pran Pratishtha was held, then also Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru boycotted the programme. They don’t want Hindu Sanskriti in India; they are always involved in anti-Hindu activities. It is an example of the party’s anti-Hindu activities by boycotting the Ram Mandir programme,” Dr Himanta Biswa Sarma said.
On the other hand, the Assam Chief Minister said that the State Government will complete the Government schemes before February 15, like ration card distribution and Udyamita.
“The foundation stone laying of 500 new schools will be held in February and we have allocated Rs 6-7 crore to each school. There will be a Vikash Pashek from February 15 to February 28. The budget session will also be held in February,” he added.
