Even as Covid-19 cases continue to rise, Uttarakhand chief minister Tirath Singh Rawat on Tuesday reduced the timings for night curfew citing upcoming festivals.
A statement from the CM's office said that Rawat has shortened the night curfew, which will now be imposed from 10:30pm to 5am. The state had imposed a night curfew from 10pm to 5am to combat Covid-19.
The decision to relax the curbs comes as the country celebrates Hindu festival of Chaitra Navratri or Vasant Navratri during the spring season. This year Chaitra Navratri is being celebrated from April 13 to April 22.
