The VHP called for the yatra despite the authorities denying permission for the same in view of the violence that took place a month ago during a similar procession in Nuh district.

“Our police and administration have taken this decision that instead of carrying out a yatra, people should go to nearby temples and offer prayers. Permission for yatra is denied but people can go and offer prayers in temples as it is Sawan month," Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar said on Sunday, 27 August.
