Here’s the Important Reason Why This Andhra MLA Spent 2 Nights at a Crematorium!

The Andhra MLA wanted to dispel myths, and decided to take matters into his own hands.

How many of you have ventured into a graveyard alone, at any time of the day, let alone at night?

Well, Nimmala Rama Naidu, a TDP MLA, spent two nights in a crematorium, just to combat superstition. The crematorium in question is located in Palakoll, in Andhra Pradesh, and needed to be modernised. Labourers were scared to work there, as they were worried, for obvious reasons.

Fed up with their resistance and clearly in a mood to dispel myths, Naidu went to the crematorium and ate, bathed and slept there for two nights, reports the Times of India.

In an era, where headlines are always about the corruption or criminalisation of politics, it is a relief, to hear a story such as this, where a leader has literally taken things into his own hands. Well, his actions had quite the impact, as Kerala CM Pinarayi Vijayan, lauded his rational spirit on Twitter.

While it is heartening to hear that the MLA spent a night in the crematorium, it must be understood why the crematorium workers were scared. All kinds of superstitions, some oppressive, are widely prevalent. People are misguided thanks to certain agendas, which ensure that rational and modern values are extinguished, leading to an ancient narrow-minded school of thought.

If it took an MLA to sleep in a crematorium to calm the workers, one can only assume the level of fear they had. In any case, kudos to the politician for his contribution towards rational thought and also for breaking down baseless superstitions.
