GHAZIABAD, INDIA: Today, all roads led to Garhmukteshwar where people thronged Garh Ganga for a holy dip on the occasion of Kartik Purnima. More than 2.7 million people took a bath in the holy Ganga today. Due to the heavy rush of pilgrims, all the roads leading to Garh Ganga were blocked at several places. Also, no proper arrangements were made for deploying private and public busses in sufficient number to carry the large number of pilgrims. In spite of strict restrictions on liquor sale by the administration, liquor was being openly sold at the Garh fair. Below standard and stale foodstuffs were being sold everywhere and there was no proper sanitation.
