The BJP's youth wing appealed to the youths on Friday not to observe Valentine's Day, which they said is against Indian culture and traditions.
The party's Yuva Morcha president Abhijat Misra said in a statement that BJP is not against Valentine's Day, but the manner in which it is observed. He asked youths to desist from celebrating it.
"Valentine's Day is used as an opportunity to display foreign culture in an indecent manner in parks and secluded places and the Yuva Morcha will not tolerate it," he said.
Meanwhile, BJP women wing vice-president A Ramchandani said Valentine's Day celebrations are not in keeping with our culture and traditions.
