SC takes cognisance of UP govt's decision to allow 'Kanwar Yatra', issues notice to state
The Supreme Court on Wednesday took cognizance of the Uttar Pradesh government's decision to allow 'Kanwar Yatra' in the state in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.
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 in triggering a possible third wave of COVID-19.
Meanwhile, the Uttarakhand government has canceled the 'Kanwar Yatra' in view of a possible third wave.
