GANDERBL: The district administration Ganderbal has said that the annual Mela of Kheerbhawani will be observed with great religious fervor and enthusiasm.

Talking to reporters at Ganderbal yesterday, the Deputy Commissioner of the district Shayambir said that some social media reports suggesting the cancellation of Mela Kheerbhawani are totally baseless as the district administration has already erected tents and lighting arrangements are being put in place. “The annual Mela will be celebrated with great religious fervor on June 8,”.

He urged Kashmiri Pandits to participate in the annual festival in large numbers. Present on the occasion, SSP Ganderbal Nikhil Borkar said those elaborate security arrangements are in place for a smooth Kheerbhawani Mela on June 8. He said night and day patrolling has been started besides highest alertness is being maintained at all levels. In the district to keep eye on anti-national elements—(KNO)
