Bhikangaon (Madhya Pradesh): Tension mounted as the Hindu community in Bhikangaon has threatened to boycott Lok Sabha elections over the alleged restrictions imposed on their upcoming festival celebrations ahead of polls. Posters advocating for the celebration of festivals without hindrance have emerged across the city.

These posters, put up by the Sakal Hindu community, serve as a visual representation of their collective discontent with the administration. A veteran member of Sakal Hindu Samaj and BJP councillor Harish Gangarade emphasised that festivals like Gangaur and Ram Navami have traditionally been celebrated with grandeur, yet they face unnecessary obstacles this year.

Gangarade highlighted the discrepancy of allowing loudspeakers in larger cities while imposing restrictions in smaller towns like Bhikangaon. Furthermore, social worker Praveen Gangarade pointed out the contrast in behaviour during recent festivities like Rang Panchami, where prominent leaders including Chief Minister Mohan Yadav and others were seen enjoying DJ music and dancing in Indore.
