A lockdown has been ordered from November 25 to 30 at Garhmukteshwar in Hapur district. Let me tell you, every year lakhs of devotees gather for bathing the Ganges on Kartik Purnima in Garhmukteshwar. In such a situation, this time the administration has taken this decision, due to Corona, which does not attract a huge crowd. It has also been decided to impose barricades on the border of the surrounding districts, so that devotees should be stopped.
The Hapur administration has sent letters to stop devotees in districts like Meerut, Saharanpur, Muzaffarnagar, Ghaziabad, West UP. At the same time, barricading is being done on the border of Meerut, Bulandshahar, Noida and Ghaziabad, due to which large number of devotees could not come.
On the other hand, the administration is preparing to send letters to other states as well. Earlier, the fair at the Ganges site has been postponed. Since then section 144 has been imposed in the entire Hapur district. This time, Kartik Purnima is on 30 November.
