High Court had earlier observed that “celebrities” should not share the puja dais and “entertainment programmes” must not be staged Bowing to demands from organisers the Maharashtra government has permitted artistes to perform religious and traditional Chaath songs on the puja stage On October 23 the Bombay High Court had upheld a Mumbai suburban collector’s decision that no celebrity would be permitted on the stage allowed on the Juhu beach questioning the need for celebrities song and dance during the celebration The Chhath Puja when families gather along riverbanks or shores to worship the Sun is to be celebrated on November 17-18 this year Every year lakhs of devotees especially those from Bihar offer this puja on Mumbai’s Juhu beach Following the court order the Bihari Front headed by Congress’s Mumbai chief Sanjay Nirupam had sought a clarification from the collector’s office on November 10 on whether inviting folk artistes for singing traditional and religious songs would invite action or contempt of court Mumbai Suburban Collector Shekhar Channe has now ruled that the court order did not prohibit singing religious or traditional folk songs Nirupam had further sought the collector’s opinion on his plans to invite three folk artistes — Ranjan Jha Devi and Shruti Bhave — on his puja stage Channe has permitted this In a letter a copy of which is with The Indian Express he has however cautioned Nirupam’s organisation to ensure that “all terms and conditions” laid down by the government and the courts are complied with The Bihari Front has been holding Chhath celebrations at Juhu for 18 years and has in the past invited several celebrities including Sonu Nigam Amitabh Bachchan and Manoj Tiwari (now BJP MP) to entertain devotees Following the court’s order the celebrations are expected to be slightly toned down this year But there appears to be an added political flavour to these with the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) keen to leverage the event to hold sway over the Bihari voting population in Mumbai Elections to the crucial Mumbai municipality are scheduled in 2017 The Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) has traditionally spoken out against the “show of strength” at Chhath celebrations BJP’s Mumbai Bihari cell chief Phool Singh confirmed that some popular Bihari television stars would be a part of celebrations in Juhu organised by an outfit backed by the BJP “They are Biharis and are coming there to perform kirtans and bhajans They won’t be there for any entertainment” he said While the conditions imposed following the court’s orders also clearly state that the celebrations must not be exploited for political gains by putting up banners hoardings and flexes of politicians Nirupam confirmed that former Lok Sabha speaker and Congress leader Meira Kumar would be the chief guest for his outfit’s celebrations “She is coming there to offer puja” Nirupam clarified Phool Singh meanwhile confirmed that plans for getting Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis to attend the BJP-backed event were being considered “These are yet to be finalised though” he said Nirupam meanwhile claimed that his outfit would argue before the court for modification of the ‘no-celebrity’ condition “At the moment it is very vague A person who is not a celebrity to you can be one for me” he said adding “While obscenity must not be permitted at any cost for such celebrations folk songs and bhajans are a part of most religious celebrations and must not be disallowed” The Congress leaders also fired a barb at the BJP-Shiv Sena government in Maharashtra alleging that “hurdles” had been imposed on the Chhath celebrations ever since the saffron alliance came to power last year For all the latest Mumbai News download Indian Express App More
