The religious places that have been closed for the last two months due to the lockdown can be opened for devotees from June 1 after the lockdown-four ends. Urban Development Minister and government spokesperson Madan Kaushik has indicated this. All religious places were also closed with the start of the lockdown. Religious activities in temples have been completely closed for almost two months. This time, there was silence in the temples on Navratri and other festivals too. Evening was being worshiped only in the morning.
Recently, the government had allowed the rituals, giving some relief to the priests. There has been a continuous demand from various temple committees and the Tirtha Purohit Samaj that the temples should also be opened for devotees. Recently, a delegation met with Cabinet Minister Madan Kaushik. Along with this, Madan Kaushik said that since June 1, religious sites are being considered with some conditions. Orders will be issued after taking a decision on this on 31 May. Markets will open in Haridwar and Tehri from 7pm on Saturday.
For your information, let us tell you that the exemption from the state government to open the market from seven in the morning to seven in the evening has been implemented in Haridwar also from today. DM C Ravi Shankar has issued orders in this regard. The DM said that now markets will be able to be opened from 7 am to 7 pm, but all the restrictions of lockdown have to be followed. At the same time, the Tehri District Administration has also issued orders to open the shop till seven in the evening.
