Lok Sabha elections are going to be held in India in 2024. Preparations for the upcoming elections have started in full swing. On one hand, the opposition is engaged in uniting against the BJP. At the same time, BJP is also reaching out to the public before the elections. Bharatiya Janata Party MP Manoj Tiwari reached Visakhapatnam in Andhra Pradesh on the previous day. In Visakhapatnam he addressed the public and sang. During this, there was a lot of public support. The BJP MP enthused the public by singing the song Saja Do Ghar Ko Mandir Sa. He shared a video of the gathering on Twitter and thanked people for the love and support they have received.
BJP MP shared the video and wrote in the post, “Yesterday I heard the echo of Narendra Modi ji and BJP in Visakhapatnam ie Vijag of Andhra Pradesh. Thank you for showing this affection and support for BJP and Modi 2024. Narasimha Rao organized this meeting Congratulations for doing Ek Bharat Shrestha Bharat.”
Ramcharitmanas has become a subject of political controversy in the country these days. The controversy that started with the derogatory statement of Bihar Education Minister Chandrashekhar Singh has now reached Uttar Pradesh. Last day, Swami Prasad Maurya also gave a controversial statement on Ramcharitmanas. However, the leader of his own party advised him to avoid such statements.
Republic TV spoke to Swami Prasad Maurya on his controversial statement. Maurya said that “We respect all religions, the aim of religion is human welfare, human respect, and human development, but if in the name of religion, a particular caste, class is rewarded with derogatory remarks, then naturally than he is objectionable.
He further said that “In the Ramcharitmanas written by Tulsidas ji, there are some parts which have made derogatory comments by using caste-indicative words, indicating the name of a particular caste. We have objections to the derogatory comments.”
Swami Prasad Maurya, referring to Ramcharitmanas’s chaupai “Dhol, Gavar, Shudra animal woman, officer of gross chastisement”, said that “The fourth varna of Hindu religion is the Shudra community, which is 85 percent of the entire population. It is objectionable to say about.”
Earlier, Bihar’s Education Minister Chandrashekhar had also given a controversial statement regarding Ramcharitmanas. The Education Minister had said that “Ramcharitmanas book is spreading hatred in the world. It is written in it that Adham caste mein vidya paaye, bhayahu yatha ahi doodh paaye, it means that the lower caste people become poisonous after getting education, like a snake after drinking milk. Manusmriti in one era, Ramcharit Manas in another and Bunch of Thoughts in the third era have spread hatred in the society.
