This Sunday, CP's Raahgirs will not be able to participate in
their weekly fun fitness regime as Raahgiri Day in CP has been suspended on June 21, due to security reasons. The Ministry of AYUSH has organized a mass yoga demonstration at Rajpath this Sunday from 7am to commemorate the International Yoga Day. A letter from Vijay Singh, Deputy Commissioner of Police, New Delhi district, to the NDMC, says, “Around 35,00040,000 participants including VIPs, diplomats, government officials, Central Armed Forces Personnel, members of yoga institutions, students and NCC cadets are expected to participate.Keeping in view the current scenario and prevailing threat perception, elaborate law and ordersecurity arrangements are going to be made on Rajpath from Vijay Chowk to `C' Hexagon, Indian Gate.“ They have therefore asked the NDMC to suspend Raahgiri in CP this week to maintain “fail proof security arrangements“ on Rajpath.
