Captain says ‘Ensure strict lockdown’

Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh has directed the state police to ensure strict compliance with Covid-19 protocols, including social distancing and masks. “We can not let all the benefits of all the work done by you in the past 55 days, and sacrifices made by the people of Punjab, go waste due to any complacency on our part now” the Chief Minister asserted.

The Chief Minister had last week announced lifting of the curfew with effect from 18 May, but the continuation of lockdown in the state till 30 May. The Chief Minister has also ordered strict enforcement of the night curfew, which bars people between 7 p.m and 7 a.m., in accordance with the Centre’s guidelines.

The relaxations have been provided to the people for their ease and convenience said Captain Amarinder, but made it clear that no deviation from protocols and restrictions would be tolerated.
