Ramnavami procession taken out in Jamshedpur on Saturday


Jamshedpur:  Perhaps for the first time in the history of city, Ramnavmi processions were taken out for two days. 

Over 30 Ramnavami jhanda processions out of the 160 plus Akharas on Saturday, bringing the Ramnavami festivity to an end.

DC Vijaya Jadhav and SSP Prabhat Kumar visited Jugsalai to inspect peaceful processions of the pending Akhara Samitis.

Though a majority of the Ramnavami processions were brought out on Friday night after hours-long discussion and consultation held between the district administration and the  Akhara Samitis after a dispute cropped up due to the administrative restrictions which had prevented the Akhara organisers to use trailers and DJ in the processions.

A majority of the Akhara organisers had refused to take out processions in protest on Friday, the East Singhbhum deputy commissioner, Vijaya Jadhav had convened a meeting of the Akhara organisers at the local Circuit House in the evening.  The Jamshedpur MP, Bidyut Baran Mahto was also called in the meeting. 

After listening to the grievances of the Akhara organisers and the opinion taken from the MP, the deputy commissioner took back the restrictions,  ensuring the way for the Akhara organisers to take out the processions in the way they wanted them to happen.

Despite it was too late for the organisers to embark upon taking out to take out the processions over 100 Akhara organisers began the processions and immersed the jhanda in the rivers Kharkai and Subernarekha by midnight.

The Akhara organisers led by the Central Akhara Committee president, Abhay Singh had refused to take out the processions after the police had seized a trailer that was being decorated for the Ramnavami procession at Aam Bagaan ground in Sakchi on Thursday.

Singh had also declared for Jamshedpur bandh today, which was also called off after the impasse was over following the administrative restrictions were lifted.

The local police stations have also been directed to work in along with peace committee members of different police stations and keep an eye on persons spreading rumour and take steps to detain the said miscreant. 

Pickets would be posted and round the clock patrolling would be done to maintain law and order, he said, adding peace committee meetings have been held with various communities, who have assured cooperation for peaceful observance of the festival.
