Nitish Kumar gets livid over documentary showing pind-daan in Gaya
Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar

 

Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar on Tuesday become angry with the water resources development ministry over a representative video documentary showing a pind-daan, a ritual conducted at the cremation of a person.

In the run-up to the Bihar assembly elections, Kumar has laid down the foundation stone of 77 projects worth Rs 2814.47 crore.
 
One of these projects relates to a rubber dam project on Falgu river in Gaya.
 
During its inauguration, the water resources development ministry played a video documentary in which a pind-daan ceremony on Falgu river in Gaya was shown.
 
As soon as it went on screen, CM Nitish Kumar got livid. He shouted in the middle of the documentary for wrong selection of visuals by the ministry concerned.
 
He said the Gaya district is renowned around the world for the Bodhi Temple where Lord Buddha gained wisdom. The pictures inside the temple are unique. "People go to Gaya to see this temple. It is an icon of Gaya and not the area where the pind-daan takes place on Falgu river," Kumar said during the virtual inauguration.
 
"I have repeatedly told the ministry concerned to avoid representing Falgu river in Gaya, still they are making the same mistake again," Kumar said.
 
The video documentary showcased the rubber dam and renovation on the either side of the river banks.
 
Since, elections are round corner in Bihar, there is an assumption that showing rituals related to death isn't auspicious.
