Uttar Pradesh Government has given permission to Kanwar Yatra, which begins on July 25. Last year it was suspended due to a high number of Covid cases in the State.
"The yatra is scheduled to begin from July 25. Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath has said that state officials should speak to their counterparts in Bihar, as there is a significant movement of devotees between our two states, and ensure that there are no violations of Covid protocols. The home department has been asked to formulate a detailed guideline for regulating the yatra this year," said a Government spokesperson.
