He said that Bastar Dussehra has many specialties, due to which people from all over the country and abroad come to Bastar every year to participate in it. The way the government-administration and the people of the entire Bastar division make this 75-day long event a success with solidarity and mutual cooperation, that is also the specialty of Bastar Dussehra.

In the last three years, many important steps have been taken to save the culture of Bastar as well as the entire Chhattisgarh. Earlier there was no official holiday in folk festivals like Teeja-Pora, Karma Jayanti, World Tribal Day, Chhath festival. Our government started holidays so that the people of Chhattisgarh can enjoy their festivals properly. Through these festivals, our sanskars pass from one generation to the next. Describing the culture of worshiping deities in Bastar as special, he said that Bastar is the only place, where along with worshiping the deities, they spend their whole life with them. They eat, sing, dance with their gods and are also angry with the gods. He said that there is a need to know and understand the country and the world about this culture of Bastar. He said that only to preserve their culture, Devgudis and Gotulas are being conserved in Bastar division. No paucity of money will be allowed in the development and beautification of Devgudis. The discussion of the primitive culture of Bastar and Bastar is done all over the world, but people still do not know about it very well. We have started organizing the National Tribal Dance Festival only to introduce the whole world to the tribal culture here. In the year 2019, a grand event of National Tribal Dance Festival was organized in Raipur. More than 2500 delegates from 25 states of the country participated in it. Simultaneously artists from Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Belarus, Maldives, Thailand and Uganda also exhibited their art. The event lasted for three days. This event could not be held in the year 2020 due to the Corona crisis. But now the situation is better, so this year also preparations are being made for a grand event of the National Tribal Dance Festival. Our public representatives are distributing invitations by traveling all over the country. This time the National Tribal Dance Festival will be held in Raipur from 28 to 30 October. Tribal artists from across the country will also exhibit their art this time. He also invited everyone to participate in the tribal dance festival on this occasion.
Mr. Baghel said that Muria Darbar has a splendid history of its own. It is my privilege to be involved in this. This Muria court is a beautiful example of the democratic traditions of our culture. In this Muria court, the kings, subjects, officers and employees all sit together and talk.

Talk about the problems of the village and society. Let us talk about the development that has happened so far and also plan how to develop in the future. Today I assure you people in this court, following the policy of development, trust and security, we will continue to work sincerely in that direction in the direction that we have promised to build a beautiful, pleasant and prosperous Bastar.
 On this occasion, Industries Minister and Minister in charge of Bastar district, Mr. Kawasi Lakhma expressed his gratitude for providing Rs. 5 lakh for construction of Devgudi in villages and Rs. 10 lakh for construction of Gotul to preserve the folk culture of Bastar. He also thanked the Chief Minister for increasing the honorarium of other members including Manjhi-Chalki, Member, who worked hard for making Bastar Dussehra a success.
On this occasion, Member of Parliament and President of Bastar Dussehra Committee, Mr. Deepak Baij said that earlier there were problems like non-receipt of honorarium of the members associated with Bastar Dussehra Committee or less, which has been resolved by the present government. This makes the members happy. He said that the tradition of planting new saplings has started to compensate for the felling of trees for the construction of chariots for Bastar Dussehra. He told that this year 53 trees were cut for the construction of the chariot, in lieu of which 500 saplings of the year have been planted.
