Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath said on Thursday that loudspeakers can be used at religious places with permission, but the sound must not come out of the premises.
He further said that no new permits will be issued for loudspeakers.
“Everyone has the freedom to choose his or her method of worship. But that should not inconvenience others,” Yogi Adityanath said.
The chief minister’s statement comes days after the Nashik Police in Maharashtra banned the use of loudspeakers without permission at religious places.
