Home (State) Minister Shambhuraje Desai promises to convene a meeting

Mumbai : Tiles with pictures of Deities and religious symbols are fitted on stair-cases of housing cooperative societies, compound walls, corners and at other places so as to discourage people from spitting and throwing litter. Ban should be imposed on use of such tiles by modifying regulations of housing societies, is the demand made by Hindu Janajagruti Samiti (HJS) on meeting Shri. Balasaheb Patil, Minister for Cooperation.

Shri. Arvind Pansare, the State spokesperson of HJS submitted memorandum for the above demand to Shri. Patil, Minister for Cooperation while requesting him to take action. Shri. Patil said, “You are doing good work. I shall look into the matter and take action.”

Meeting was also held with Home (State) Minister Shambhuraje Desai for the same demand. Shri. Bharat sheth Gogavale, Shiv Sena-MLA elected from Mahad made a demand that tiles fitted by cooperative housing societies as also at public places with pictures of Deities and religious symbols for discouraging people from urinating or throwing trash was leading to denigration of Deities and hurting religious sentiments of people. A joint meeting should therefore, be held with officers of Home Ministry and Ministry for Cooperation in this context. Minister Desai instructed his private secretary to call such meeting after conclusion of ongoing budgetary session of State Legislative Assembly.

Similar demand was made through a letter by MLA Shri. Gogavale with Minister for Cooperation. Shri. Ajay Sambhus and Shri. Satish Sonar of HJS were present on the occasion.
