Maha Vikas Agadhi leaders also visited various places.

During the celebrations, along with religious programmes throughout the city, the excessive use of DJs was noticeable.

Anil Vaidya from the Sahakarnagar area stated, “I have lived in the city for the past six decades. Previously, the Ram Navami was celebrated largely in temples. But this year is unusual. Traditionally celebrating the festival is appreciated, but this DJ culture is an appalling practice.”

Alka Kelkar from Padmavati stated, “It was plausible to celebrate Ram Navami with gusto after the inauguration of the Ram Temple in Ayodhya. It’s nice to celebrate the occasion, but the growing menace of DJ culture must stop.”
