Uttarakhand Chief Minister Tirath Singh Rawat on Monday indicated the possibility of relaxations of Covid-induced curbs to increase the turnout of devotees at the Kumbh Mela in Haridwar.

The CM added that he has directed that there should be no “rok-tok” (impediments). “You speak about negative (Covid-19) reports. Lakhs of people will come. How many of them will you check? …Can you handle that?” he said, claiming that the solution is to follow Central guidelines.
