In the letter, the chief minister said that while the govt. is actively thinking about demands to open up temples and other religious places, its primary duty is that the security of people during the pandemic.

In the Columbus Day letter, the Governor had said, “I wonder if you’re receiving any divine premonition to remain to postpone the reopening of the places of worship time and again or have you ever suddenly turned ‘secular ‘ yourselves, the term you hated?”

Responding to the letter, the CM said, “Do you mean that opening up religious places is Hindutva, and not opening them means being secular? Secularism could also be an important base of the oath you took as Governor. do I not believe it?”
