Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has expressed concern over the growing cases of Corona. The Chief Minister said that lockdown can be imposed in the markets if required. For this, he has sent a proposal to LG as no lockdown can be imposed without the permission of the Center.
Chief Minister Kejriwal said that some important decisions have been taken due to the increasing cases of Corona. He said that when the situation of Corona in Delhi had improved in the past, the Delhi government had increased the number of guests to the wedding ceremony from 50 to 200 as per the guidelines of the Center. That order has been withdrawn and now the number of guests at the wedding is being brought back to 50. Its proposal has been sent to LG.
He further said that during Diwali time we saw that there was too much crowd in some markets due to which the corona infection spread rapidly. In such a situation, we have sent a proposal to the Center to allow us to lockdown the markets when needed. However, he also hoped that now that the festival is over, it may not be needed, but the Delhi government should be allowed to lockdown if any further efforts do not improve the spread of infection.
Kejriwal said that the way every state governments and the center are fighting the battle of Corona together, we will definitely win it. He has thanked the Center for assuring the ICU beds demanded by the Delhi government. Kejriwal hopes that the situation will be fine when the Center provides him 750 ICU beds, thanks to which.
All governments are trying their best to fight Corona, but this disease will not go until we all take precaution. He appealed to wear masks and follow social distancing.
