UP Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath asked devotees participating in the Kanwar Yatra not to play “vulgar” film songs and asked people to stay away from gambling on Diwali.
Those participating in the annual pilgrimage should not “show off” during the festive season, he said. “Kanwar yatra is about to begin. Playing of vulgar film songs and DJs do not go with religious feelings.It is improper to indulge in gambling after worshipping Goddess Lakshmi on Diwali,” he said.
The minister, who was on a visit to the city, located near the Indo-Nepal border, said that India and Nepal are two bodies and one soul, there is a need to impart skill development training to people residing on both the sides of the frontier.
At a skill development training programme organised by the Sashastra Seema Bal, Adityanath said, “We must give a befitting reply to those who are trying to target India by making Nepal their centre. From this point of view, it becomes extremely important to give training to Nepalese people.”
