Came to light in ABP investigation
ABP News reached Rajghat to know the truth about selling altars for Rs 1,000 at Rajghat in Gorakhpur. Here two girls, Shalini and Sandhya Bedi, residents of Hasaupur, were found making. Both of them clearly denied the allegations made in Akhilesh Yadav’s tweet. She says that she is building her own altars. He neither found any broker here nor did anyone demand to buy the altar for ₹ 1000. She says that she does not consider this type of accused to be right.
Officials reached the ghat and inspected
After such allegations by Akhilesh Yadav, senior officials also reached the spot on Saturday morning and inspected Rajghat. Although the officials are avoiding saying anything in this matter, their investigation did not find any truth in such allegations.
‘Marketization of beliefs is not good’
Akhilesh tweeted and wrote, ‘On holy festivals like Chhath, BJP people are selling river ghats and altars. Commercialization of beliefs is not good. The way exorbitant rates are being charged for trains and trains to reach home on Chhath is condemnable. Mass transport like railways is increasing the price as per the demand, it is the job of the market, not the government, to take advantage of someone’s helplessness and increase the price or fare of something. This is also a kind of black marketing, which is the job of the government to stop.
