Let us tell you that in the month of Sawan, preparations have been intensified in the Sangam city of Prayagraj for the Kanwar Yatra, which is going to start from July 25. IG Prayagraj Range KP Singh, in a meeting with the captains of the four districts of the range, has given instructions to complete the necessary preparations for the Kanwar Yatra. At the same time, he has also directed the station heads to complete the preparations for the successful completion of the Kanwar Yatra. According to the IG range, the Kanwar Yatra in Prayagraj will be carried out on the same routes as in the previous years. According to him, this year also, the one way system will be applicable on Andawa to Handia highway between Prayagraj and Varanasi. During this time, on only one lane, Kanwariyas will come and go to Varanasi Baba Vishwanath’s court with Kanwar from Sangam. Along with this, instructions have been given to clean the other pagodas and Ganga Ghats in the city in coordination with other departments.
Preparations for Kanwar started in UP
Instructions have also been issued for adequate security arrangements on Kanwar routes. In Prayagraj, Kanwariyas take bath in the Ganges on the traditional route at Dashashwamedh Ghat and also fill water in Kanwar. Therefore, instructions have been given to make special arrangements at Dashashwamedh Ghat as well. In particular, instructions have been given for cleanliness and laying of chalked plants at Dashashwamedh Ghat. Along with this, DM Sanjay Khatri has ordered the concerned magistrates and police station heads to comply with the orders of the Supreme Court and the High Court so that the law and order situation does not deteriorate due to loud DJ playing by Kanwaris.
At present, IG Range KP Singh has given instructions to complete all the preparations before the Kanwar Yatra begins. He has also given instructions for the deployment of adequate police force on the spot in advance by identifying the sensitive places. According to the IG, the Kanwar Yatra will be completed safely this year only by following the guidelines of the government.
