Kanwar Yatra has been called off in Delhi in view of the pandemic, just a day after the Uttar Pradesh government banned the religious event.

As per news report of NDTV, "The Kanwar Yatra has been banned in Uttarakhand, but despite this, there is a risk of the spread of the virus due to crowding or taking out processions, in view of which this decision has been taken," the order by Delhi Disaster Management Authority said. The Uttarakhand government has already called off the event amid fears expressed by experts of a possible third wave of the pandemic and the risk posed by such gatherings. Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal had earlier said all governments and people alike must take required actions to curtail the spread of COVID-19.
