Omicron scare: UP re-imposes night curfew from Dec 25; not more than 200 people allowed in weddings


Amid rising concerns over the new COVID-19 variant Omicron, Yogi Adityanath-left Uttar Pradesh government on Friday re-imposed night curfew in the state and stated that not more than 200 people will be allowed in weddings.

“Night curfew to be put in place from December 25 from 11 pm – 5 am. Not more than 200 people allowed in weddings,” the state government said.

This comes a day after the Allahabad High Court requested Prime Minister Narendra Modi and the Election Commission of India to explore the option of postponing the upcoming Uttar Pradesh Assembly election. 

“Jaan hain toh Jahaan hain,” stated Justice Shekhar Yadav while requesting to take a decision on postponing the election and political rallies, Bar and Bench reported.

“Election rallies of political parties should be banned to save the public from the third wave of Corona in the Assembly elections to be held in UP. They should be asked to campaign through TV and newspapers. ECI should take strict steps to stop the election meetings and rallies of the parties. Also consider postponing the election, because only if there is life, the world is meaningful,” the High Court said.
