Stay indoors: City BJP Unit
City BJP Unit has urged Mysureans to voluntarily stay indoors tomorrow from 7 am to 9 pm and participate in Janata Curfew tomorrow.
City BJP President T.S. Srivatsa said, “I would like to urge all citizens of Mysuru to stay indoors tomorrow. In particular, senior citizens, children under 10 years as well as persons suffering from any illnesses, should stay indoors and others too should not step out of their homes unless essential.
“City BJP Unit has formed a task unit in all the 65 Wards. Our team of volunteers are ready to help you. There is no need to panic. People should not believe in false news and resort to panic buying. Let us not go to the hospitals or clinics unless it is an emergency,” Srivatsa added.
