Ghaziabad Schools Closed from July 18 to 21 due to Kanwarias Rush
New Delhi, July 17: All the private and Government schools will remain closed from July 18 to July 21 due to heavy rush of kanwariyas as ordered by the District Magistrate (DM) Ministhy S Nair.
A very large number of kanwariyas come from Haridwar to offer Gangajal at Dudheswar Nath temple in the city.
Since the traffic has been diverted from major roads in the city, the school-going children would face the problem. And the NH-58 has been closed for heavy traffic so majority of the city dwellers would not be able to send their children to schools.
As the Shivratri falls on July 22, devotees would start coming to the temple on July 21 night onwards. The offering of Gangajal will conclude in the morning on July 22.
