Chhath Puja will not be held in public places this time in Delhi

New Delhi:
 Preparations for the mahaparva chhath puja of faith begin about a month in advance. This four-day festival is celebrated by millions of people in Bihar, Jharkhand and eastern Uttar Pradesh. But the corona virus, like other festivals, is also going to weaken Chhath Puja.

In view of the ever increasing cases of Corona, Chhath Puja will not be held in public places this year in the capital Delhi. The Delhi Chief Secretary said, the Delhi government has issued an order directing all DMs, police, DDCs and all officers to ensure that the Chhath Puja festival in November is held in the national capital by public places, river banks, Not allowed in temples etc.

The DDMA refused to accept the Delhi government's proposal because the Central Government has not yet been directed to open a swimming pool and Corona cases are also increasing. Revenue Minister Kailash Gehlot said, this year Chhath Puja will not be held in public places, although devotees can celebrate this festival in their homes or in any private place following the Kovid-19 guidelines.

Last year, a total of 1,108 small and large ghats including the Yamuna River were built by the Delhi government to organize this festival. This year Chhath festival will be celebrated from 18 November to 21 November. Nahai Khay is on 18 November. Kharna is on November 19. Sandhya Argh is on November 20 and Usha Argh on November 21.

Let us tell you that in view of the increasing infection of Corona virus in Delhi as well as Kolkata, rules have been issued in view of the Kovid 19 protocol in Chhath Puja. According to the rule issued by Mamta government, this time no more than two members of a family can go to Chhath Puja Ghat. The Bihar government has also urged the public to organize Chhath Puja at their homes or private places.
