Nowadays, the real or fake news is so very hard to distinguish. Apparently, on Saturday, a ‘tantrik’ entered Chhattisgarh Assembly, performed pooja for the year-end polls to ensure that the incumbent BJP government gets a fourth consecutive term.

His presence in the premises was reported by Congress Legislator Brihaspati Singh, to which the Speaker Gaurishankar Agrawal said that he had met the ‘tantrik’, and that he was a respectable man. The Speaker also took a picture with him, The Hitavada noted.

The Baba whose forehead was shining with a liberal amount of vermillion had necklaces of various shapes and metallic objects, was also seen with Chief Minister Raman Singh.

The Hitavada then talked to the ‘tantrik’, who revealed his name to be Ramlal Kashyap. Furthermore, he said that he was a resident of the village Mulmula in Pamgarh Assembly segment under Janjgir Champa district. Additionally, he mentioned that he runs an eatery by the name of Hari Om Jalpaan Grih and is also President of the Bhartiya Janata Yuva Morcha Mandal of his village.

The media house further questioned Ramlal, enquiring his reasons for the visit, to which he replied, he was headed to the Amarnath Yatra on August 1 with a resolve to make BJP win for the fourth time. Lastly, he informed that he was in his attire for the last 20 years and his ornaments weighed almost ten kgs total.

Chhattisgarh Assembly-Polls are due to take place in November this year and will see the incumbent Raman Singh government’s fight to retain power. Congress, on the other hand, will try to regain its lost ground after 2003. Both parties are trying to woo Adivasi voters, who comprise almost 32% of the population, and could be the X-factor in the elections, a report by The Indian Express informed.


The Logical Indian Take

Superstition at a time when the need to inculcate a scientific temper in the Indian society is paramount. If our elected representatives can use a ‘tantrik’ to ‘win’ elections, then there is little hope that they will promote education and open-mindedness.
