Mayawati extended Eid greetings to the people of the state, made this appeal to the central and state governments
Lucknow: Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) President and former Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Mayawati on Wednesday congratulated Eid-ul-Azha and lauded the steps of the Supreme Court in the prevention of corona virus and urged the central and state governments to take serious steps towards infection. He appealed to work for the good of the public.
Mayawati on Wednesday tweeted, "Happy Eid al-Adha to all and best wishes. For the safety and well being of our family and neighbors, it is necessary that everyone celebrate Eid without overcrowding by following the rules of corona virus. A late but commendable step. Now all the governments should also take full care of the well being of the public by being very serious about the corona virus and people should also get vaccinated.
Significantly, the Supreme Court on Tuesday termed as "completely unjustified" the relaxation given by the Kerala government in restrictions on the occasion of Bakrid in areas with high infection rate of Kovid-19 and said that the traders should bow to pressure. Shows "pathetic condition". The court directed the Kerala government to pay heed to Article 21 (right to life and personal liberty) of the Constitution and comply with the rules of its order on the Kanwar Yatra in Uttar Pradesh. The Supreme Court, while hearing the Kanwar Yatra case in Uttar Pradesh on July 16, had observed that all sentiments, including religious, are subordinate to the right to life.
