Jammu: Lauding the community effort in performing various religious obligations with austerity in true religo-cultural spirit, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Devender Singh Rana Sunday said that the initiatives leave an indelible mark and lasting impact for successful accomplishment of social reforms.
“Such an effort reflects decency and high level of emancipation,” a statement of BJP quoted Rana as saying while participating in Samohik Yagnopavit ceremony organised by the Global Solace Society and Vishwa Kashmiri Samaj at Swami Mirza Kak Ji Ashram here.
Rana said such congregational ceremonies bring parity in social order and help in minimising wasteful expenditures that have taken a toll on poor segments of society.
“Pomp and show by affluent people become almost a norm which eventually stays on as a social evil that becomes hard to fight. Against this backdrop, the well-intended effort is highly appreciable,” he said adding that this should be encouraged in a big way.
“Coming from an emancipated community, the congregational ceremonies will inspire others to follow suit,” Rana said and congratulated the parents for the high degree of their understanding in volunteering to congregational events which enabled the culmination of such a ceremony.
“This is indeed heartening,” he said.
