Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal said that it has been decided to increase the restrictions to break the chain of corona infection. This time the Delhi government has given exemption to two industries – manufacturing (construction) and construction (construction work). Permission has been given to work strictly following the measures of Kovid-19.
Earlier, after the meeting of Delhi Disaster Management, Chief Minister Kejriwal had said in a press conference that now gradually Delhi will be unlocked. Corona cases are steadily decreasing in Delhi. The people of Delhi have also overcome this wave of corona in a month. In the last 24 hours, there has been a 1.5 percent infection rate and around 1100 cases. Gradually, cases are getting reduced everyday. There is no problem in getting beds in hospitals. A large number of ICU and oxygen beds are also lying vacant.
Kejriwal had said that a large number of beds are empty even in the Kovid centers we had built during the time of lack of oxygen. Now it is time to slowly unlock in Delhi. Otherwise, lest people escape from Corona, but die of starvation. We have to maintain balance so that the corona does not grow and we have to try to carry out economic activities.
There is a lot of anger among traders about the Delhi Government’s Unlock-1 policy. Business organizations have described a loose policy. It has been said that neither this small industry will benefit from this poor policy nor will the economic conditions improve. This decision is highly irrational and justified. India’s retail market is the backbone of the country’s distribution system. Delhi should be opened in a phased manner until the Kovid situation improves. Business organizations have welcomed the opening of the factories. Also asked how the factory will be run, Mal Mal Bakega said.
Traders asked many questions to the government
Business organizations have also raised many questions on the government’s Unlock-1 policy. It has been said that the industrial policy of the government, which always claims to take decision from the public of Delhi, has opened. It is asked whether before taking the decision, the government kept in mind that without the supply of raw materials to the open factories the market would be from where? After the start of production, which manufactured market will go to sell the manufactured goods? Where will the spare parts for the factories come from? The goods of a large number of shopkeepers have been lying on the transport for the last 40 days and they are deteriorating, whose responsibility will it be? Goods kept in shops are deteriorating due to lack of care, rain has caused damage in many shops, who will compensate for this? Many questions have been raised with the government, including payment transactions, installments of banks and other loans.
