Congress leader Sachin Pilot has written a letter to Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot asking for the establishment of a board in the state government in the name of the local deity Veer Tejaji.
Veer Tejaji was a legendary Rajasthani folk hero, also considered to be one of the incarnations of Lord Shiva and worshiped as a deity in rural Rajasthan.
The former deputy prime minister of Rajasthan said the demand for the establishment of a board in the name of Shri Veer Tejaji Maharaj has been pending in the state for a long time.
In many states of the country, including Rajasthan, Veer Tejaji Maharaj is worshiped as a folk god and has millions of followers, according to a press release citing Pilot.
With the establishment of this board, many sections, including farmers, will receive support and new arrangements can be made for them, he said in the letter.
