Only 50 can gather for effigy burning at Dussehra

Thursday, 14 October 2021 | Staff Reporter | RAIPUR

The Chhattisgarh government has decreed that only up to 50 people can gather to view the burning of effigies of Ravana and others on Dussehra on Friday.

This is one of the guidelines the district Collectors in the state issued on Wednesday.

The effigies should be burnt in an open space. Not more than 50 persons including the chief office-bearer of the organizing committee are permitted to gather.

The organizers will have to maintain a register of all those arriving to participate. No cultural programmes and feeding are allowed near the site, an official communication said.

Those present at the venue should mandatorily keep physical distance, wear a mask and use sanitizer from time to time.

Playing of loud music is banned and there will be a bar on decorations and tableaux too.

The guidelines state that if any person gets infected after visiting an effigy burning site, the entire cost of treatment will be borne by the committee. No effigy can be burnt in any containment zone.
