    Yogi said that he had told the poilice to ensure that microphones are banned everywhere and not sound emanates from any place of worship. This was in reaction to the officers red-flagging the use of microphones, DJs and music system during the recent kanwar yatra. I asked the administration whether such a ban could be enforced and if it was not possible, then the yatra would continue the usual way, Yogi also said.

    The Chief Minister said officers briefing him on the kanwar yatra told him that use of use of microphones, DJs and music systems would not be allowed. I asked if this was a kanwar yatra or a funeral procession. If they don't play music and drums, don't dance and sing, don't use the mike, how will it be a kanwar yatra.

    He said everyone has the freedom to celebrate festivals in the country. "Hum sabke liye kahenge... Aap Christmas bhi manaiye... kaun rok raha hai... Bharat ke andar kabhi nahi roka gaya... Aap namaz bhi padhiye, araam se padhiye... kanoon ke daayre me reh kar ke padhiye, koi rokega nahin ( You celebrate Christmas, who has stopped you. You want to read namaz, read it. However ensure that it is in the limits of the law).
