Cuttack: In the wake of the Covid-19 spread, the Cuttack Municipal Corporation (CMC) has issued guidelines considering a possible congregation of people near water bodies on the occasion of Kartika Purnima.
CMC has imposed a ban on the congregation of people at Gadagadia Ghat, Chahata Ghat, and other water bodies on November 19.
Sailing of miniature boats and congregations restricted at rivers and other water bodies in Cuttack on Kartika Purnima, informed DCP Prateek Singh
The decision has been taken on basis of the restriction imposed by the State government on large religious congregations as per its order on August 31, 2021, and another order on October 31, 2021.
Last year, the city municipal corporation had also prohibited congregation at water bodies in Cuttack due to the pandemic.
Notably, the district administration here on Tuesday decided not to conduct historic Baliyatra this year in view of the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic situation.
