Centre filed an affidavit in SC stating that states must not allow devotees to move

In light of the current Covid-19 crisis, the Centre has stated that state governments should not allow the Kanwar Yatra. The government stated in its affidavit to the Supreme Court that permission should not be granted for Kanwariyas to travel to Haridwar to bring 'Ganga Jal.' The government, on the other hand, advised that states construct a system to make 'Ganga Jal' available via tankers at selected areas, taking religious sentiments into account. Earlier on Wednesday, the Supreme Court took suo motu notice of a story about the Uttar Pradesh government's decision to allow the 'Kanwar Yatra' in the midst of the COVID-19 outbreak and requested comments from both the state and the federal government.
