Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Thursday said the government has received over five lakh suggestions from people in the national capital on how to safely exit from the lockdown.
Delhi, like the rest of India, has been under a lockdown to prevent the spread of Covid19. He said that most of the people who shared the suggestions agreed that those violating the social distancing norms and those not wearing masks should be punished heavily.
Kejriwal said some activities will be allowed in Delhi from Monday onwards based on the Centre’s decision to ease the lockdown.
Delhi has the fourth highest number of Covid19 cases after Maharashtra, Gujarat and Tamil Nadu. Earlier the chief minister had said that salons, spas and cinema halls were risky despite strict social distancing rules, a hint that they may not be allowed to open.
He said market associations have suggested that markets be allowed to open but as per the earlier odd-even rule applicable for vehicles.
In an online conference, Kejriwal said that suggestions to open public transport including buses and metro in a limited way had come and they were exploring the possibility of how to do it.
