Jayashankar Bhupalpally: Chhattisgarh Chief Minister Raman Singh had a narrow escape at Medaram jatara on Thursday as his security personnel (National Security Guards) staved off a coconut that had almost hit him at Sammakka Gadde.

The incident reportedly prompted Raman Singh to leave the place without visiting the Saralamma Gadde. A devotee had reportedly thrown a coconut, which is a practice at Gaddelu at Sammakka Gadde, while Raman Singh was paying obeisance.

It is alleged that the incident happened as the police failed to stop people from throwing the coconuts and jaggery cakes. However, Bhupalpally Superintendent of Police (SP) R Bhaskaran, speaking to Telangana Today, rubbished the reports about throwing coconut at Sammakka Gadde while Raman Singh was present.

“The incident did not happen when CM Raman Singh was there. We are not aware why the CM did not want to visit Saralamma Gadde. As per my knowledge, it would have been decision of his security personnel,” he said, and added that Raman Singh had indeed expressed his happiness over the arrangements made at the jatara.

Meanwhile, CM Raman Singh offered jaggery aka Bangaram equivalent to his weight to the goddesses at jatara. Chhattisgarh Education Minister, Kedar Kashyap, Forest Minister Mahesh Gagda and Personal Secretary to CM OP Gupta accompanied the Chief Minister.

Earlier, Raman Singh was given a warm reception by Telangana Deputy CM, Kadiam Srihari and Endowments Minister A Indrakaran Reddy.

Meanwhile, Andhra Pradesh Endowments Minister (BJP) P Manikyala Rao, who paid obeisance to the goddess, praised the State government for making all arrangements for the convenience of the devotees.
