Jamshedpur, Oct 6: BJP’s national vice president and former Chief Minister Raghubar Das performed Kanya Puja in the Sun Temple located in Sidgora on the occasion of Mahanavami.
After performing Havan in the temple premises with wife Rukmani Devi and son Lalit Das, he worshiped the girls by performing aarti of Mother Durga. During this, former Chief Minister Raghubar Das worshiped nine girls and fed 112 small girls in the form of pudding, puri-sabzi, kheer and chutney.
Gifts were given to the girls.
Raghubar Das said that according to ancient mythology, there is a special importance of worshiping girls on Ashtami and Navami days in Navratri.
“The prosperity of any nation cannot be imagined without respect for women power. In such a situation, not only the upliftment of women, the vision of development under the leadership of women has become the policy of the nation in the last few years. Along with this, the sensitive thinking of the central government under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi has awakened the people in the society and now daughters are emerging as our pride,” said Das.
He said that the confidence of India’s women power has increased today. Now they are giving direction to the future of the country by determining their own future.
He expressed concern over the increasing incidence of misconduct against women in Jharkhand and other parts of the country in the recent past. He said that Mother Durga should give wisdom to those who have a sick mentality towards women.
