Ban on Holding Religious Events on Roads in UP

Lucknow: Uttar Pradesh government has put curbs on holding religious events and functions on roads, obstructing traffic during the upcoming festivals of Eid, Akshay Tritya and Parshuram Jayanti. All district officials in the state were directed to ensure that religious programmes are held indoors and no one blocks roads for religious celebrations.

Principal Secretary (Home) Sanjay Prasad and Special Director General of Police (SDGP) Prashant Kumar have issued directives to all concerned officials during a virtual review meeting.

The officials have been asked to remain alert against fake news or information shared on social media that might hurt people’s sentiments, and not allow any religious procession for which prior permission was not taken.

Extra precautions are being taken as Eid-ul-Fitr, Akshaya Tritiya and Parshuram Jayanti may be celebrated on the same day on April 22.
