HJS demands govt to stop malpractices during ‘Valentine's Day’

Panaji, Feb 4 (UNI) The Hindu Janajagruti Samiti (HJS) has handed over a memorandum to the Dy Collector of Ponda, Bicholi, Mapusa, Vasco and Collector of North Goa appealing them to stop alleged malpractices occurring during ‘Valentine's Day’.
According to a statement here on Sunday, appeal has been done to appoint special police squads to stop malpractices on the occasion of ‘Valentine's Day’, increase police patrol in the college premises and taking action on speeding drivers.
The memorandum, submitted on Saturday, said western tradition of celebrating the ‘Valentine Day’ on February 14 in India is being established since last few years.
''With a view to gain some business this distorted version of love is being made popular among youth and as a result the young generation is drawn towards sensuality and immorality. Under the name of ‘Valentine's Day’ with a view to express obscene love, teasing and violent acts concerning young girls through one sided love have been reported. So also there is rise in the malpractices like consuming intoxicating drinks, drugs, smoking, etc. during the dinner parties organised on this Day. Immense sale of contraceptives shows the rise in immoral relationships. Lot of accidents take place on this day due to speedy driving undertaken to impress girl-companions,'' the memorandum said.
