Areas where mini-lockdown can be implemented
1- On Tuesday Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal said that in those markets where Mask wearing and social distancing norms are not being following and if that place becomes corona hot spot then we have to shut that market for few days. We are sending a proposal to the central government for the same.
These markets of Delhi Can be shut down if the Delhi government gets permission from the central government to close the markets:
Cannaught Place, Karol bagh, Sarojni Nagar, Sadar Bazar, Lajpat Nagar, Janpath, Chandni Chowk, INA, Patparganj, Lakshmi Nagar, etc
CAT is against this market shut
Confederation of All India traders (CAT) is against this proposal. CAT says that we are unite in fighting against the coronavirus but the government should think of the results which will happen after the closure of markets.
2 – Only 50 persons are allowed in marriages instead of 200 persons.
A few days ago when everything becomes fine central government has allowed 200 persons in marriages but as the cases start increases Delhi government has sent a proposal to LG to restrict this permission to only 50 persons in marriage.
