 Gandhinagar: Celebrations of Holi have been banned amid a spike in cases of corona virus across the state. On Sunday, state Deputy CM Nitin Patel said that the state could be lit for the Holi puja but not for public or big or small color festivals. The celebration of Dhuleti has also been banned in the state. Corona has raised a number of restrictions over the past several days.

 Disclosing this, Nitin Patel said, "Religiously, a limited number of people can gather for Holi burning, but no concessions have been given for playing Holi." Under normal circumstances, monitoring will be done and action will be taken as required. But I hope and believe that all the citizens of Gujarat, young men and women, brothers and sisters are aware. They will follow public guidelines by the state government to prevent the spread of corona infection. They will not celebrate Holi and will not even gather for the festival. '
