  • Ram Navami is celebrated to commemorate the birth of Lord Rama

After continued violence and clashes over Ram Navami celebrations in West Bengal's Asansol, Section 144 has been imposed in the region. "Where is the circular?" he had asked.

While the Purulia SP Joy Biswas confirmed that one person was killed in the clash, the Additional Director General of Police (Law and Order) Anuj Sharma said five police personnel, including a deputy superintendent of police-rank officer, were injured after violence erupted between two groups over the Ram Navami procession in the Arsha police station area.

"Unidentified miscreants of the TMC joined the rally to create a ruckus". However, when contacted the state VHP president Sachindranath Singha he denied all the allegations.

"Soon after getting information that children were made to participate in a Ram Navami rally with arms, police rushed to the spot and seized the arms". "The Centre has expressed desire to send paramilitary forces to Raniganj but the final decision on this will be taken by Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee", said senior Minister Partho Chatterjee.

In Kolkata, several Ram Navami rallies were organised by members of the Sangh Parivar.

Ghosh himself took part in Ram Navami celebrations in Kharagpur area of West Midnapore district. It has taught us tolerance. Politics is for the welfare of the people. "We are celebrating this festival for years, no one should resist us". A while ago, when distinguished dignitaries of all ASEAN countries were here (in India) on 26 January, they were accompanied by cultural troupes from their respective countries. "I am sorry to say", she said. These trouble-mongers holding pistols and swords are resorting to hooliganism. This is not our culture.

She hoped the occasion would be the harbinger of peace, progress, and prosperity in the state.

"Do not allow anybody trying to hold such processions for the first time".
