CM to decide on complete weekends lockdown tomorrow

July 9, 2020

Bengaluru: With Corona positive cases rising alarmingly across the State, Chief Minister B.S. Yediyurappa has convened a meeting of Union Ministers representing the State and MPs at the Palace Grounds in the State Capital tomorrow morning (July 10), to discuss on extending Sunday total lockdown to Saturday as well.

Presiding over a Cabinet meeting here this morning, Yediyurappa is said to have expressed grave concern over the rapidity of COVID-19 spread. During the course of the meeting, the CM is also said to have discussed about the more stricter measures that can be taken to contain the spread of the virus, ban on inter-district travel to and from Bengaluru, which has become the topmost hotspot of the deadly pandemic and extension of curfew beyond the time limit now in force, while also not hampering economic activities.

Meanwhile, the Chief Minister’s Office is said to have received reports and inputs from the Police and the Expert Committee formed by the State Government on other stern practical measures that can be taken to stem the disease.

    So Yedi wants to meet these union ministers in Palace Grounds? Is not in Modi’s Digital India, and in the IT hub Bengaluru, a video conference is safer? More lock downs, more curfews , and more restrictions when it appears the Corona Virus is taken firm hold of communities,-the phase of the rising curve of Covid-19 cases? But all these will not apply to VVIPs like Deve Gowda and others , who will be preparing to celebrate weddings, birthdays etc..etc.., but only to common families, who have reached the limit of suffering.

    First of all ban liquors in all formats immediately for one month and restrict opening shops of commodities in all areas for limited timings. Wearing Mask should be made compulsory for shopkeepers first who do not follow these guidelines. Spitting and smoking in public places is found in wine shops and Bar areas. If these are closed for some time there may be improvement in future . But unless we people follow the guidelines nothing can be expected positive.
