In the midst of Chhath Mahaparva, the BMC has prohibited performing Chhath Puja on the Mumbai coast. BMC has appealed to the people of Mumbai to worship at their home on the festival of Chhath and follow the rules of the Corona period. Security and monitoring arrangements have been made in Mumbai’s coastal areas in view of BMC’s appeal.
As per the decision given by BMC on Friday, Chhath Puja is not allowed at any beach in Mumbai. Every year, thousands of people come to the coastal areas and Juhu Beach in Mumbai to perform the ritual of offering arghya for Chhath Puja. Since a large number of corona infected patients have been found in Mumbai this year, the BMC has appealed people not to come here to avoid the crowd gathering to prevent the spread of infection.
People supported the decision
BMC has told the people that since it is right to stay at home amid the danger of Corona period, people should perform the rituals and worship of Chhath Argh at their homes. At the same time, some people who have come to Juhu beach have also supported this decision of BMC as correct. A local woman present on Juhu Beach said that since there is a large crowd here every year, the decision of BMC is absolutely correct. We all accept this decision of BMC as correct and this year the people of Mumbai have decided to celebrate Chhath festival at home.
