Grand celebrations during Holi are more than unlikely this year as the country witnesses a continuous uptick in novel coronavirus cases. The Centre, too, has advised states and Union Territories to impose restrictions under Section 22 of the Disaster Management Act.  The country has been recording over 40,000 cases every day since the last week and experts fear a possible second wave hitting the country.

Maharashtra has been the worst-hit by Covid-19 as it continues to register the highest cases in the country. The Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC), the civic authorities of Mumbai, has banned public and private celebrations of Holi and Rangapanchami in the city. “All private/public celebration of Holika Dahan & Rang Panchami has been prohibited to ensure Covid-19 doesn’t play a spoilsport. We request Mumbaikars to cooperate. Strict action will be taken against offenders,” BMC had tweeted. Similarly, the Pune Municipal Corporation, too, has banned Holi celebrations in the city citing high Covid positivity rate of the last 15 days.
