Why Operation Maryada started by Uttarakhand Police?

For the past several days, several incidents of obscenity by playing songs on the speaker at Ganga Ghats in Dharmanagri, drinking hookah by placing it on the feet of Ganga in Har ki Paidi area, doing gimmicks on behalf of fake eunuchs and celebrating birthday party have come to the fore.

Action was also taken against many people in these cases, but now to save the glory of Ganga Ghats, the police has started Operation Maryada. Under this campaign, 10 policemen will be deployed at Ganga Ghats. These policemen will now roam the Ganga Ghats for 24 hours and will take action against those who create disturbance here.
