Delhi government is creating various teams in order to implement the measures with regard to restrictions on public gatherings at Holi, says Jain.

He said: “The government is creating various teams in order to implement the measures with regard to restrictions on public gatherings at Holi. Yet, I would like to appeal to one and all that we must celebrate the festival within our homes. These festivals would come next year as well wherein one could celebrate it publicly. When 50 people meet and come in contact, out of these even if 2 are positive, the rest would test positive too. Such events must be avoided. DMs and Police are creating District wise teams. Legal action would be taken against violators.”
Amid a surge in coronavirus cases in the national Capital, the DDMA had on Tuesday ordered that there would be no public celebrations in Delhi during the upcoming festivals such as Holi, Navaratri and Shab-e-barat.
