COVID-19 will disappear with blessings of Lord Ram: Shiv Sena
The COVID-19 crisis in the country will disappear with the blessings of Lord Ram, the Shiv Sena said on Tuesday (August 4), and pointed out that veterans like L K Advani and Murli Manohar Joshi won't be present in Ayodhya for the temple bhoomi pujan ceremony.
The COVID-19 crisis in the country will disappear with the blessings of Lord Ram, the Shiv Sena said on Tuesday (August 4), and pointed out that veterans like L K Advani and Murli Manohar Joshi won’t be present in Ayodhya for the temple bhoomi pujan ceremony.
An editorial in the party mouthpiece Saamana” took a dig at the August 5 ceremony being held amid rising cases of coronavirus in the country.
“There is no other golden moment like the one when Prime Minister Modi performs the bhoomi pujan at Ayodhya, the Sena said. “Coronavirus is there, but will disappear with
Lord Rams blessings,” it added.
Advani and Joshi, key leaders associated with the Ram temple construction campaign, will witness the ceremony via video conferencing from Delhi. They were advised not to attend the ceremony in view of their age and the outbreak of COVID-19 in Ayodhya.
Uma Bharti, another prominent leader attached to the campaign, will also not be present at the ceremony and will instead watch it “from the banks of the Sarayu river through
the eyes of her mind”.
There is excitement in the country in view of the bhoomi pujan ceremony. “Coronavirus has spread in Ayodhya, Uttar Pradesh and the entire country. This crisis, too, will fade away with the blessings of Lord Ram,” it said.
The responsibility of security arrangements in Ayodhya was with the Home ministry, but it is unfortunate that Home Minister Amit Shah tested coronavirus positive. Despite the presence of the Prime Minister, the RSS chief, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister and others, the ceremony will be lacklustre without Shah.
It said Shah participated in a public event in Delhi last Saturday and attended the cabinet meeting last Wednesday observing social distancing norms, and has asked those who
came in his contact in the past few days to isolate themselves and get tested for coronavirus.
The entire Council of ministers needs to be isolated, if the home minister is saying this. Shah is close to Modi but nothing will happen to the prime minister and the home minister due the blessings of Lord Ram, says Shiv Sena.
