The Rajasthan Govermnent is being blamed for the callous act of breaking most worshipable Govardhan Shilas for the non-essential purpose of erecting a sign board welcoming tourists to the state.
The work was carried out by a contractor last week and has attracted anger of residents and sadhus, who are expressing their disgust at the callous act. One sadhu began to weep as told media about the bulldozers that came and smashed the shilas.
The signboard has been placed on Govardhan’s inner parikrama, some distance away from the road. The inner Parikrama Marg is supposed to be a sanctuary, were people can be close to Govardhan, but, this spiritual sanctuary is being put under threat by callous Government policies that are designed and acted on without consulting residents.
