Jamshedpur: Members of Rajak Samaj, an association of self-proclaiming representatives of the Rajak community in the city, have demanded construction of an electric crematorium at Fagu Baba Shamshan Ghat in Sonari.
The outfit members said the crematorium should be constructed at the proposed site in Sonari as early as possible.
They claimed that many members of Rajak community were in favour of the demand for a crematorium in Sonari. They said the demand raised by the MLA of Jamshedpur West Banna Gupta for the construction of a crematorium at Fagu Baba Shamshan Ghat was justified.
Springing a surprise by coming into the scene almost unexpectedly, the less known outfit members however did not comment on the impact of construction of the crematorium on the health of the people residing in the area.
They said they stood by their demand irrespective of the ongoing protests by local residents and outfits concerned about the hazardous impact of the crematorium on environment in case it is constructed.
