DC urges Dev Samaj to honour ‘collective’ decision on nazrana

Kullu, October 18

Deputy Commissioner and Kullu Dasehra Festival Committee vice-chairman Ashutosh Garg has urged members of Dev Samaj to respect the unanimous decision on 'nazrana' (honorarium) taken at a General House meeting in Atal Sadan on September 25.

The DC said representatives of the entire Dev Samaj of the district, kardars, priests had unanimously decided in the General House that this time, due to the absence of commercial activities, they would not take 'nazrana' given to the deities for participating in the festivities. He said all office-bearers of Kullu Dasehra Festival Committee, including all MLAs of the district, the 'Chharibardar' (chief caretaker) of chief deity Lord Raghunath Maheshwar Singh were also present.

He said representatives of Dev Samaj expressed their views and after extensive discussions, it was decided that 'nazrana' would not be taken as the committee has no source of income.

The vice-chairman urged the people associated with Dev Samaj to respect the decision taken collectively in the General House.

He said the decision of General House in Kullu on 'nazrana' was also presented before the state-level committee in Shimla and the committee had given its nod to the decision of Dev Samaj. — OC
