The Congress on Wednesday cancelled all political rallies and programmes in poll-bound Uttar Pradesh after surprising scenes yesterday from an occasion in Bareilly district, wherein a whole lot of girls and teenage women had been seen with out masks and in a near-stampede state of affairs.
UP Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath has cancelled Thursday’s rally in Noida as a result of the district has reported the very best variety of COVID-19 circumstances within the state.
It’s unclear if the ruling BJP plans to observe the Congress’ lead in scrapping all political occasions and rallies – which draw crowds of 1000’s that make it tough to keep up Covid security protocols – as concern spreads over a 3rd wave of infections led by the extra transmissible Omicron pressure.
In scary visuals from Tuesday, a whole lot of girls and teenage women had been seen with out masks at a marathon organised by the Congress as a part of the occasion’s ‘ladki hun, lad sakti hun’, or girls can combat, election marketing campaign.
The gang crammed a complete highway and, as they began, just a few girls within the entrance tripped and fell down, resulting in a short scare as a whole lot pushed to get previous these within the entrance.
The state of affairs nearly led to a stampede; thankfully, nobody was injured.
