People will not be allowed to take a holy dip in the Ganga river in Haridwar on the occasion of Kartik Purnima on November 30. This comes in view of the COVID-19 pandemic, the district administration said on November 26. Lakhs of devotees from different parts of the country including Delhi, Haryana, Punjab and Himachal Pradesh converge on the banks of Ganga for a ritual bath in the river on the occasion every year. However, in compliance with the Centre's guidelines in view of coronavirus, it has been decided to stop people from taking a bath in the river on Kartik Purnima this year. Taking a bath in the river will lead to crowding on the ghats which may cause spread of the virus, Haridwar District Magistrate C Ravishankar said.
