“With the Maha Yuti government coming to power in the state, the BJP has been celebrating all festivals, be it Dahi Handi, Ganeshotsav, Navratri, Diwali, Shiv Jayanti, etc. In keeping with its tradition and to carry forward the legacy of our rich Hindu culture, the Mumbai BJP has organized a grand ‘manglagaur’ competition which is a perfect blend of tradition with a modern touch,” Mumbai BJP president MLA Adv. Ashish Shelar said while announcing the competition at the state BJP headquarters on Wednesday.
Ashish Shelar heaps praise on BJP
“BJP has always nurtured and cultivated Hindu festivals. Festivals are soul of our culture. The purpose behind such events is to ensure that in this fast-paced world, we get a few rejuvenating moments some time to play games, songs and have hearty chats with each other. In fact, many women do not get the right platform to showcase their talents. And hence, through these undertakings, we want to make sure that the next generation comes to know about the games played by the earlier generations and about our rich tradition as well,” Shelar said while appealing women to participate in the competition in large numbers.
