Flouting Covid Guidelines, Hundreds Take Part In Wedding Procession


Ganjam: While the Odisha government has imposed lockdown and weekend shutdown restrictions in a bid to curb the spread of coronavirus, a group of villagers were seen dancing to the tune of loud DJ music while taking out a marriage procession.

The incident, which came to light after a video clip showing the entire act of blatant Covid lockdown guidelines violation went viral on social media, has been reported from Baranga area under Patrapur block in Ganjam district.

The perpetuated video shows that hundreds of people irrespective of age were dancing to the tune of DJ.

Though the administration had completely banned such programme with capping the guest gathering at 25 only in case of wedding events, the attendees of the particular weeding openly flouted the guidelines.

A similar marriage procession was also reported from the district where two brothers as groom were seen taking horse ride while hundreds of fellow villagers were  dancing to DJ’s music. The incident occurred at Godarpali under Hinjilicut in the district.
