Identify responsibility, follow closure: Mayor’s appeal
Given the growing contagion of covid, it is now the responsibility of the administration as well as the citizens to control it. The administration had ordered closure of the entire market last Saturday and Sunday after announcing restrictions till March 7. Citizens were also urged to stay at home. All the establishments, including the traders, complied with the order and the citizens also spontaneously responded to the call. Nagpurites deserve congratulations for that. This order is also valid on March 6 and 7 and this order should be followed. The shops will be open on Saturdays and Sundays in view of the request to keep the meat and mutton shops open along with the essentials. Citizens should not leave their homes unless they need to. Mayor Dayashankar Tiwari has appealed to everyone to recognize their responsibility and observe the shutdown voluntarily.
