As per news report of NDTV, "For the last three months, the Covid-19 situation is under control in Delhi. I believe, that we should allow the festival of Chhath Puja to be conducted with Covid-19 protocols in place," Mr Kejriwal said in the letter. The Delhi Chief Minister further said that neighbouring states like Uttar Pradesh, Rajasthan and Haryana have allowed their residents to celebrate the festival with necessary Covid-19 protocols. "I request you to urgently call a meeting of Delhi Disaster Management Authority (DDMA) to pass the order allowing the celebration of 'Chhath Puja'," he further said. The letter comes at a time when the state opposition BJP is demanding the festival be allowed. Delhi BJP president Manoj Tiwari on Tuesday held a protest outside CM Arvind Kejriwal's official residence demanding permission for Chhath Puja in Delhi.
