Nuh yatra this year too, say outfits | India News



GURGAON: Hindu outfits have said they will bring out their annual Brajmandal Shobha Yatra in Nuh this year too, leading to concern about law and order as the state heads into assembly elections later this year.
Violence had erupted during last year’s yatra on July 31, triggering riots across several south Haryana districts and claiming seven lives, including those of two homeguards.Around 90 people were injured in the clashes.
Officials said they had received no intimation about any such yatra in Nuh this year. However, members of Vishwa Hindu Parishad and Bajrang Dal claimed they were mobilising supporters from all 22 districts of the state for the procession, which is likely to be taken out on July 22.
“This year, the yatra will be organised on Monday, July 22, under the guidance of sadhus and religious leaders of various Hindu organisations,” said Rajkumar Garg of Agrawal Mahasabha Nuh.
Anurag Kulshrestha, the VHP social media head in the state, insisted the procession would be a “purely religious and non-political” event. “It will be led by sadhus, who will focus on the spiritual significance of the yatra. We will ensure it remains peaceful and devotional,” he added.
According to Kulshrestha, around 15,000 people are likely to participate in the rally. There will be volunteers to guard the walkers this year, Kulshrestha said. During last year’s yatra, participants were pelted with stones, which sparked the violence.
Nuh DC Dhirendra Khadgata said nobody had written to the authorities seeking permission for the march. Police chief Vijay Pratap said no permission had been given for any yatra.
Nuh legislator Aftab Ahmed of Congress said, “I am worried because of last year’s violence. The district administration and police must look into all aspects of law and order.”
