Asaram plays holi with water, while Maharastra thirst for drops

Nagpur-A severe drought gripping many parts of Maharashtra did not deter spiritual leader Asaram Bapu from celebrating a pre-Holi function and wasting many litres of water here Sunday, said a social group. Andhashraddha Nirmoolan Samiti (ANS) condemned Asaram Bapu’s alleged Goli play and staged a protest.”A person who calls himself a saint, does he not have basic common sense? Asaram Bapu was in Nagpur in the afternoon and met his followers at the Kasturchand Park grounds. He and his followers played a colourful, wet Holi with the help of water tankers brought from the Nagpur Municipal Corporation.Though the amount of water used in the celebrations was not clear, residents told mediapersons that lakhs of litres was literally wasted.
