COVID-19 will disappear with Lord Ram’s blessings: Sena ahead of ‘bhoomi pujan’

The COVID-19 crisis in the country will disappear with the blessings of Lord Ram, the Shiv Sena said on Tuesday, and pointed out that veterans like L.K. Advani and Murli Manohar Joshi won’t be present in Ayodhya for the temple ‘bhoomi pujan’ ceremony.

An editorial in the party mouthpiece Saamana, the Sena said, “There is no other golden moment like the one when prime minister Modi performs the ‘bhoomi pujan’ at Ayodhya.

“Coronavirus is there, but will disappear with Lord Ram’s blessings,” it added.

“Advani and Joshi, key leaders associated with the Ram temple construction campaign, will witness the ceremony via video conferencing from Delhi,” the editorial noted.

They were advised not to attend the ceremony in view of their age and the outbreak of COVID-19 in Ayodhya, it said.

Uma Bharti, another prominent leader attached to the campaign, will also not be present at the ceremony and will instead watch it “from the banks of the Sarayu river through the eyes of her mind”, the Sena said.

There is excitement in the country in view of the ‘Bhoomi pujan’ ceremony, the Sena said. “Coronavirus has spread in Ayodhya, Uttar Pradesh, and the entire country. This crisis, too, will fade away with the blessings of Lord Ram,” it said.

“The responsibility of security arrangements in Ayodhya was with the home ministry, but it is unfortunate that Home Minister Amit Shah tested coronavirus positive,” it said.

“Despite the presence of the Prime Minister, the RSS chief, Uttar Pradesh chief minister and others, the ceremony will be lackluster without Shah,” the Sena said.

It said that Shah participated in a public event in Delhi last Saturday and attended the cabinet meeting last Wednesday observing social distancing norms, and has asked those who came in his contact in the past few days to isolate themselves and get tested for coronavirus.

“Shah is close to Modi but nothing will happen to the prime minister and the home minister due the blessings of Lord Ram,” it said.
