The Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) also appealed to people to not crowd Chaityabhoomi in Dadar to pay tributes to Dr BR Ambedkar on his death anniversary on December 6 in view of the Covid-19 pandemic.
BMC Commissioner Iqbal Singh Chahal urged the people to pay homage to Dr Ambedkar from their homes as a precautionary measure against coronavirus and considering the possibility of the second wave of infection.
“Social distancing, physical distancing, wearing masks, using sanitizers is the new norm. We have to avoid crowding at any cost because the threat is not yet over,” Chahal said.
Every year lakhs of followers of Dr Babasaheb Ambedkar visit Chaityabhoomi from across the state on Mahaparinirvan Din, he said.
