Mumbai : The demand for the reopening of the temples closed due to the Corona lockdown in Maharashtra has intensified by the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP). Today, Maharashtra BJP workers protested against the state government outside the Siddhivinayak temple. During this, they demanded the Uddhav government to reopen all the temples of the state for devotees.

On BJP’s demand, the state’s Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray said, “As it was not right to implement the sudden lockdown, it would not be a good thing to completely lift the lockdown at once. And yes, I myself follow Hindutva. My Hindutva does not require a certificate from you.”

Protesters also tried to enter the temple amidst police deployment and barricading during the protest. BJP workers were taken into custody by the police after attempting to enter the Siddhivinayak temple. Apart from this, BJP workers also staged a protest outside Shirdi Sai Baba temple demanding reopening of places of worship in the state. The party is carrying out similar movements across the state.

BJP leader Prasad Lad said that we are demanding that we be allowed to enter the Siddhivinayak temple. If they do not give us entry, we will make our way to the temple. This agitation is happening all over Maharashtra. We want all the temples in the state to be reopened.
