AP Government’s attitude creates Ram Navami controversy

Hyderabad: The AP state Government’s attitude in declaring holidays is causing controversy even among the party and official circles. The Government has declared holidays on April 5 for Babu Jagjivan Ram’s birthday and April 14 for Ambedkar’s birthday. The Chief secretary Harinarayan passed orders to this effect using negotiable instruments act. Many citizen associations and groups have earlier requested state Government to declare holiday to financial institutions on SriRama Navami using negotiable instruments act.

Government rejected the demand claiming that under the act holiday count cannot exceed 18 in a given year. The AP Government also claimed that even in other states under negotiable instruments act the number of holidays cannot exceed 18 thereby silencing the people. But the new orders passed by Chief Secretary is raising the controversy. People are questioning YS Rajasekhara Reddy’s Government how the act which was used the state Government to deny Hindus of their religious holiday is used by Government to further its political interests.
