Stop the desecration of Shri Vitthal taking place through the pictures displayed on ‘Vithai’ bus ! – Memorandum by devout Hindu activists to district administration
Kolhapur : ‘Vithai’ bus service was introduced by the Maharashtra State Transport Corporation during the regime of Shiv Sena-BJP coalition Government in the State and the service was later extended all over the State. The bus service that was started in the name of ‘Shri Vithumauli’ was quite commendable and the Government maintained the honour of ‘Warakaris’ faith. It has, however, been observed that on some of these ‘Vitahi’ buses, a lot of dust has gathered and there are stains of spitting and mud on the picture of Shri Vitthal displayed on these buses. It is a kind of desecration of Shri Vitthal and it should be immediately stopped by removing the pictures displayed on the buses. A memorandum to this effect was submitted by local devout Hindu activists to the district administration. The memorandum addressed to the State Transport Minister Anil Parab was received by Tehsildar Anant Gurav on his behalf.
