Dharma prevails over usual Hindu Splitsville in Jamshedpur

Truce reached as Jamshedpur MP Bidyut Mahato intervenes, norms relaxed, Akharas take out processions, Saturday Bandh call withdrawn

Jamshedpur: For a few hours, it seemed the differences over the decision to not take out Ram Navami Akhara processions would split the Akhara committees vertically into two clear groups. One that favored a tough stance against the administration’s strict rules, and the other that felt that there was no reason to escalate the issue over a trivial matter. Some even did read the division line as a split between Congress-leaning vs BJP-leaning Akharas.

However, in the end, common sense prevailed. Thanks to the intervention of Jamshedpur MP Bidyut Mahato, a truce was reached and the dispute was resolved.
