In what can be called a bizarre move, Uttar Pradesh chief minister Yogi Adityanath called for the pruning of fig trees along of the route of the Kanwar Yatra on Thursday.
Why? Because these trees are considered inauspicious by the devotees.
This move, made during a high-level meeting with officials, is the first of its kind as no other chief minister prior to this has called for trimming green for religious sentiment.
