UP: Govt decides to cancel Kanwar Yatra completely this year
Uttar Pradesh government informed on Monday to Supreme Court that it has decided to completely cancel the Kanwar Yatra this year, and all Kanwar Sangh’s have agreed to this in view of COVID-19.
The stand of the UP government came two days after the Supreme Court gave an ultimatum to reconsider its decision to allow Kanwar Yatra amid the pandemic.
In today’s hearing, Senior Advocate CS Vaidyanathan appearing for Uttar Pradesh informed Supreme Court that it is the second year that the yatra has been cancelled due to the pandemic.
It may be recalled that Delhi and Uttarakhand have already cancelled the ”Kanwar Yatra”.
