  • The Supreme Court has taken notice of the Uttar Pradesh government’s decision to allow the ‘Kanwar Yatra’ to take place in the state in the aftermath of the Covid-19 outbreak.
  • The state administration was served with a notice by a bench led by Justice RF Nariman, and the case was set for hearing on Friday.

The Uttarakhand government has cancelled the ‘Kanwar Yatra’ in view of a possible third wave. The Yogi Adityanath government on Tuesday allowed the yatra from July 25 despite concerns raised in various quarters over the risk posed by such events.

The Kanwar Yatra in Uttarakhand has been called off after a meeting of the state’s chief ministers. ‘We are not interested in turning Haridwar into a Covid-19 hotspot,’ said Pushkar Singh Dhami at the meeting.

In the aftermath of the Covid-19 outbreak, the Supreme Court took notice of the Uttar Pradesh government’s decision to allow ‘Kanwar Yatra’ in the state. The state administration was served with a notice by a bench led by Justice RF Nariman, and the case was set for hearing on Friday.

‘I was reading something.’ India’s population are absolutely perplexed. They have no idea what’s going on. All of this comes as the prime minister warns of a third Covid wave, adding that “we cannot compromise even a little bit,” according to Justice Nariman, who issued the notice.
Despite concerns raised in many sectors about the risk posed by such gatherings in igniting a probable third wave of Covid-19, the Yogi Adityanath government on Tuesday approved the yatra to begin on July 25. Meanwhile, in anticipation of a possible third wave, the Uttarakhand administration has canceled the ‘Kanwar Yatra.’

‘We have no intention of making Haridwar a Covid-19 hotspot.’ We don’t want to jeopardize people’s lives. In light of this, we have decided to postpone the Kanwar Yatra. We need to save people’s lives. After the meeting, Uttarakhand Chief Minister Pushkar Singh Dhami said, “God would not want lives to be lost.”
