A video of the event that was posted to social media showed a complete lack of social distancing and many people not wearing face masks. 

The government has been working hard to educate the people but some are still not getting the message.

Sukanta said that over 500 people attended the event and the majority did not follow any COVID-19 prevention protocols. The government is once again warning the people that an event like this should never happen again during the pandemic.
