VHP working president Alok Kumar said that this decision of Kerala will weaken the country’s fight against the pandemic.
The Kerala government has decided to relax the corona restrictions in view of Eid-ul-Azha (Bakrid). But the opposition to his decision has started. The Medical Association (IMA) and Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) on Sunday demanded the Kerala government to withdraw the decision.
The IMA has said that if the state government does not implement the corona-appropriate behavior (protocol), it will go to the Supreme Court. At the same time, the VHP has said that due to the epidemic, the states of North India are stopping the Kanwar Yatra.
Other religious events are also prohibited. But the Kerala government took such a decision, which could become a big challenge for public health. VHP working president Alok Kumar said that this decision of Kerala will weaken the country’s fight against the pandemic.
