Activists of above mentioned groups vowed to maintain distance from couples who want to enjoy the day without any fear as several instances showed that the groups attacked couples and compelled them to marry each other.
Shiv Sena's Delhi convener, Om Dutt Sharma has been quoted as saying, "Since last year we are not going in for any kind of demonstration. What is the use or point. We cannot stop them from celebrating, and we are getting a bad reputation."
Vinod Sharma, a Bajrang Dal activist also said, "Earlier, we used to object to Valentine's Day celebrations and tell couples whom we found together to get married, otherwise we would hand them over to police or parents. But since last year we have subdued our opposition."
"There will be no protests or demonstrations against it, but at the same time youngsters should also behave decently. We have already given instructions through our district offices that no activists should harass any couple on February 14 unnecessarily," added Mr Sharma.
