    Dear God!... The Railways send Lord Hanuman an eviction notice

     

     

    Digital desk: By posting a notice inside the Hanuman temple with the name of Hanuman Ji, the East Central Railway has mandated that the temple be removed within 10 days. The issue involves Dhanbad's Berabandh neighborhood. A warning to leave the land in Khatik Basti has been posted by the railway. The illegal jhuggi-jhopri surrounding the Hanuman temple as well as both have been ordered to be removed by the railroads.

    In Berakbandh's Khatik neighborhood, people have lived there for a long time. The majority of the Khatik community's immigrants are from Uttar Pradesh. For years, they have made a living by running small enterprises that deal with water, fruits, fish, vegetables, and other items. The railway crew has posted a notice asking residents of the area to leave any homes that are currently occupied illegally. All of the residences have had notices with their names taped on the walls.

    In the local Hanuman temple, a notice with Hanuman Ji's name was posted during this time. In the notice, it is made quite clear that the temple you are using illegally is on railroad property and bears the name of Hanuman Ji. Within 10 days of receiving the warning, remove the temple and vacate the property, then turn it over to the Senior Section Engineer Department. Otherwise, you will be the target of legal action.

    The locals protested after receiving the warning. Many men and women have assembled and claimed that although other religious facilities have been constructed on hundreds of acres of railway land along the major route, the railway never takes a look at them. There are about 230 families living here; if an attempt is made to remove it without providing substitute housing, then where will the people who have lived here for years go?
