The play on the life of BR Ambedkar that was to be staged by the Delhi government from January 5th has been postponed given the rising COVID-19 cases in the city.
"Delhi Govt had planned a grand show on the life of Babasaheb Ambedkar from 5th January, in Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium. However, this show is being postponed in light of rising Covid cases. We shall announce a new date as soon as the situation improves," Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal tweeted. The government has not announced the new dates.
