Showering flower petals from helicopter on Kanwariyas

Kanwar pillgrims were showered with flower petals from a helicopter in Meerut by top administrative officials today. Meerut’s IG Range Praveen Kumar and DM Deepak Meena took a chopper ride all over the district and showered flower petals on kanwariyas.
