The Madhya Pradesh administration has finally determined that mining would not be permitted on the hill where Lord Ram is said to have made a vow to slay demons. After the Satna district government scheduled an obligatory public hearing for September 30 before approving mining at Siddha Pahad, a significant dispute broke out.
Geologists had anticipated finding gemstones, but according to the Hindu epic “Ramcharitmanas,” “Aranya Kand,” the hills in the area contain the skeletons of seers who have been buried for a very long time. It was here that Lord Ram made his decision to purge the earth of evil forces during his 14-year exile.
Along with making fun of the governing BJP, the Congress today declared that “truth has prevailed” and that “Shivraj Chouhan’s administration has realized its error” in response to the previous chief minister’s demonstrations Kamal Nath had foreshadowed.
Siddha Pahad in Satna is a focal point of our faith and awe, according to Mr. Chouhan’s remark. We’ll maintain this location’s sacredness. There will be no mining here at any price. The district administration has received instructions.
The hill is located on the long-discussed “Ram Van Gaman Path,” a religious tourist route that would track what is thought to be Lord Ram’s time spent in the woodlands.
Recently, the state administration requested 500 crores from the federal government.
However, Kamal Nath stated, “After playing politics in the name of Lord Ram, the BJP is now working in a well-planned manner to demolish relics associated with Him,” in response to recent advertising for a pre-mining public hearing in Satna.
Shivraj Chouhan also received a letter from BJP MLA Narayan Tripathi, who stated: “I phoned your office to request a meeting with you to discuss this critical problem, but I was unable to get the time from there. I beg you to issue an order prohibiting mining on the hill and to designate the whole Chitrakoot sacred circuit as a “No Mining Zone.” If not, I’ll march from Sarbhanga Ashram to Siddha Pahad with the locals.
