Folk singer Brijraj Gadhvi told ANI, "This month is Parshottam month. I have been performing for free during this period. These folk singing programmes are for fund raising. The donations we get in this shows are used for charity."
The practice of showering money during mehfils or musical evenings is not uncommon in rural India. Many believe that this act of showering money is not just in praise of the performer, but also towards a fund-raising cause. The money collected from the performance is often given towards charity or some social cause.
BJP leader Jitu Bhai Vaghani said that it's with love and reverence that people do such acts and should be seen only with that intention only. Moreover, the collected money goes towards noble causes.
