Political furore over Chhath Puja in Delhi, BJP MP Manoj Tiwari told Kejriwal
During the hearing on the petition against the Delhi government, the Delhi High Court refused to allow the public to celebrate Chhath Puja, saying that if they remain alive, anyone else can celebrate the festival. Thousands of people gather at the ghats on Chhath festival. In this case, the spread of corona virus is in danger of being widespread. The High Court also rebuked the petitioner for filing such a petition. The bench said that at present, such a petition is beyond the ground reality.
The petitioner challenged the Delhi Disaster Management Authority (DDMA) order that Chhath Puja should not be performed on river banks, temples and other public places. The petition was dismissed by a bench of Justices Hema Kohli and Subramaniam Prasad. A bench of justices Hema Kohli and Subramaniam Prasad said that allowing Chhath Puja in this way would serve as a super spreader of corona infection.
