Uttarakhand misled HC on kanwar yatra: Petitioner to SC | India News


NAINITAL: One of the petitioners who had filed a PIL in the Uttarakhand high court on the Covid situation in the state has now approached the Supreme Court (SC) alleging that the state misled the HC on kanwar yatra. The petitioner, Anu Pant, has filed the application in the special leave petition (SLP) moved by the Uttarakhand government, challenging the HC’s order that stayed the phased opening of the Char Dham shrines.
Speaking to TOI, Abhijay Negi, counsel appearing for Pant, said that the state government had informed the HC that it has decided to cancel the kanwar yatra this season but media reports indicate that the government is reviewing its decision. “This is against what they told the HC and we will inform the apex court how the HC has been misled by the government,” Negi said.
