In view of the increasing cases of corona in Maharashtra, the rules are being strictly followed. Congress leader Sanjay Nirupam has objected to the news of the closure of shops in many areas. In a tweet against his own government, he questioned the attitude of the Mumbai Police. The Congress leader said that the Big Bazaar is open, but the policemen are roaming around and closing the shops of the traders and retail traders. Poor shopkeepers are also eating poles of policemen in many places. He raised the question, “What kind of Tughlaki lockdown is this?” According to Sanjay Nirupam, it should be closed immediately and an order should be issued to keep the shops and markets in need.
Let us know that the situation in Maharashtra is the most worrying. On Monday, more than 47 thousand infection cases have been reported in Maharashtra alone. The government has issued a warning to lockdown several times, but the situation is going to deteriorate instead of improving it. In such a situation, the government has announced weekend lockdown and night curfew. The Maharashtra government has announced on Sunday that from Monday to April 30, the lockdown on weekdays and night curfews will be in force on weekdays. Apart from this, several other measures have also been taken, announcing the closure of private offices, cinema halls and salons.
Here, due to this strictness of the government, the concerns of retail traders have also increased. The shopkeepers have termed it as a retail lockdown, saying that due to this lockdown, the retail industry in the state will have to face a serious cash crisis. They say that the business will be affected by the closure of the retail business except for essential items.
