Tourists Cause Massive Traffic Jam In Himachal Pradesh As Travel Ban Eases, Sparks Meme-Fest

Last week, the Himachal Pradesh government eased COVID-19 restrictions after the number of cases went down. They declared that the negative RT-PCR test was no longer mandatory to gain entry into the state. However, a covid e-pass was still required for travel.

After the announcement, several tourists flocked to Shimla on Sunday, resulting in a long queue of cars at the Parwanoo border, Solan district. As cops stopped the vehicles to examine the e-pass of travellers from other states, the traffic jam worsened, The Indian Express reports.

Have a look at the video here:

And as usual, people on Twitter expressed their concerns through memes:

1. Many hilariously took a dig at the ‘impatient’ tourists.
