This year, to save the glorious tradition of Bastar, 100 pucca ghatul will be made
Famous as the traditional consciousness center of the youth, but now the disappearing Bastar’s Ghotul tradition is expected to be revived with the announcement of Chief Minister Mr. Bhupesh Baghel. Today, Mr. Baghel in Narayanpur announced the construction of 100 scams in the district this year. At the same time, he also announced the development of Devgudi in all 104 panchayats here at a cost of Rs 9–9 lakhs.
The announcements made by Chief Minister Mr. Baghel during his stay in Narayanpur regarding scams and Devgudis are considered important from the point of view of cultural conservation of Bastar. Mr. Baghel said that people from all over the country and abroad come to understand the Ghotul tradition of Bastar. Ghotul has been the center of social activities of our youth, sitting there they discuss the development of their villages and region. He said that during his stay in Narayanpur, some people told him that the government should also build scams, and this year also demanded the construction of 50 ghotulas. The Chief Minister agreed with this demand and said that I announce the construction of 100 ghotul this year, whether it will cost 10 lakh rupees or 12 lakhs, there will be no shortage of money. He said that even though the structure of the new scams is confirmed, its design and decoration should be traditional, so that the identity of our antiquity remains. Announcing the development of Devgudi in all the panchayats of the district, Mr. Baghel said that toilets and drinking water arrangements will also be made at these sites.
