The Uttar Pradesh chief secretary told the Allahabad High Court on Thursday that there would be a report to ensure that only those people would not be infected with COBID-19 and that they would be admitted to the Magh Mela here. The order was given by the court while the public interest litigation related to Kovid-19 was being heard. A bench of Justice Siddharth Verma and Justice Ajit Kumar, while recording the Chief Secretary’s statement, said, “Even after considering these directions, we do not fully agree that the step being taken by the state is a passage. Enough to stop it.”
The court fixed the next hearing of this PIL on January 12, 2021 and directed that within the next date, the state government should present a reliable and easy way through which it wants to control the infection. The court said, “The government should keep in mind that such congregations are held on a very large scale in the month of Maga and if an infected person enters the city, it can cause havoc.” It was directed that a specific date and schedule should be submitted to the court as to when and how the state government should be vaccinated in the state for eradication of COVID-19. The court also directed the chief secretary on how to remove the places of worship built on government land.
