Delhi: Hindu Munnani today urged the District Administration to prevent poojas at temples on the intervening night of New Year and also impose ban on revelries.

In a petition to District Collector Archana Patnaik, it sought to ban new year celebrations in hotels, resorts and public places and also conduct of special poojas in temples.

Munnaani District President K Dasharathan said the new year celebrations were part of Western culture and against the cultural and traditional values of Tamils.

The younger generations, in the name of celebrations, were engaged in liquor consuming, creating public nuisance and also causing accidents by their reckless driving past midnight, he claimed.
