Maharashtra BJP netas & workers try to force their way into temples


MUMBAI: BJP on Tuesday asked the state government to reopen temples and other religious places and “not force religious heads and devotees to forcibly enter them.”
The party joined religious heads and stall owners (those who sell puja items, flowers, fruits) outside temples in a symbolic fast demanding that temples be reopened.
In Mumbai, BJP functionaries Pravin Darekar and Prasad Lad along with party workers tried to forcibly enter the Siddhivinayak temple at Prabhadevi but were stopped by police and detained at the local police station.
State BJP president Chandrakant Patil joined protesters at the famous Shirdi Sai Baba temple. “Do not let the situation come to a point where sants, mahants, warkaris forcibly enter temples,” the party warned the government in a statement.
In a statement, the regional head of the Adhyatmik Samanvay Samiti, Tushar Bhosale, said in Shirdi that the Centre had allowed religious places to be opened and it was the MVA that was not allowing it in Maharashtra.
