Haridwar. The speed of Corona is becoming uncontrollable but people still remain careless. Corona guidelines are not followed. The situation at the Ganges Ghat in Haridwar is quite dangerous. People are reaching Haridwar from all over the country to perform bone immersion and other rituals. The crowd at Har ki paidi is overcrowded and the Corona Guidelines are not being followed there. Here, from the priest to the police administration, it seems indifferent to follow the Corona Guideline on the Ganges Ghats. In fact, people from all over the country are reaching Haridwar to perform bone immersion and rituals of their dead relatives. Nothing like curfew is seen on Harki Pauri. The crowd here seems like the usual days. The social distance of Kovid’s guideline on Harki Paadi seems to be a joke. There are some people who are following the Kovid Guideline, but are also scared to see the scene here. The police administration also seems unable to follow the Corona Guidelines. The pilgrims coming to Haridwar bone immersion say that the corona’s guideline is not being followed at Har Ki Pauri Brahmakund. A large number of devotees are coming to Haridwar, but despite this, no arrangement has been made by the police here. In Haridwar, curfew has been imposed till May 10 in view of the serious condition of the corona. However, the administration has received permission from those who come for bone fracture at Har Ki Pari. Police officials are still claiming that the Corona Guidelines are being followed. CO City Abhay Pratap Singh says that in view of the corona epidemic, the Haridwar District Magistrate has given exemption to the people coming to Haridwar Har ki Pauri to perform bone immersion. The police administration is working there along with the local businessman Tirtha Purohit. The police believe that despite this, there is some problem because there is more crowd of passengers coming to perform the bone immersion rituals. In view of this, people are being made aware by the police for social distancing and applying masks. At the same time, the Panda society which is doing bone immersion and rituals, has also been asked to protect themselves and their families. Therefore, perform rituals with social distancing.
