After the suspension of the Kanwar Yatra in Uttarakhand, Haridwar Police urged people not to arrive in the district for the Kanwar Yatra on Thursday. The Kanwar Yatra was to begin on July 25. The Haridwar police have directed that the town will be sealed. The neighbouring state of Uttar Pradesh government has allowed the Kanwar Yatra with some restrictions. 

Amid rising fear of the third wave, the Uttarakhand government has mandated a 14 day quarantine period for people coming from outside the state. Haridwar Police stated that if vehicles enter the state forcibly, the Police will seize the Vehicle under Disaster Management Act. 

In the Kanwar Yatra lakhs of devotees of Shiva trek to Haridwar in the month of Shravan to take back the water of river Ganga and offer it to Lord Shiva. This Yatra sees heavy movement. Due to this, the Uttarakhand government decided to suspend the Yatra this year too. 

Due to the surging Delta variant cases, the administration of Uttarakhand has taken a precautionary measure by cancelling the Kanwar Yatra. The Police have directed that the entry points and exit points of Haridwar district have been sealed to debar the heavy movement of people. 

The notice issued by the administration clearly said that people coming from outside Uttarakhand state have to compulsorily follow 14-day quarantine rules and regulations. The Haridwar police have stepped up to ensure that no person enters the district for the Kanwar Yatra. 

The newly appointed Uttarakhand Chief Minister Pushkar Singh Dhami said that the administration held a discussion with officials and experts before arriving at the conclusion of cancelling the annual Kanwar Yatra this year. The Uttarakhand Indian Medical Association (IMA) has also warned the Dhami led government against the Kanwar Yatra. Dhami also added that top priority is given to human life while formulating the decision.
