Raise objection over people movement and some shops still open for business
Vadodara Vyapar Vikas Association welcome the government decision of night curfew and mini lockdown in 32 cities the state. However they raise objection over some of the shopkeepers continue to open their shops from the back door. Furthermore they point out the movement of people as dangerous and is not helping anyway to break the chain.
The Gujarat government on Tuesday extended the night curfew to seven other cities to control spread of coronavirus. It is in addition with the 29 major cities where the curfew is in place from 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. The curfew will come into force from Wednesday and last till May 12.
The state has been seeing a surge of corona cases and deaths recently and hence it’s necessary to break the chain.
Vadodara businessman and traders are also supporting the government decision and closed down their shops after the mini lockdown. However they raised objections over some of the traders are doing business from back door.
“We are fully supporting the government decision but as some of the shops are open it’s like cheating with the others specially the small businessmen. The local administration shall implement the order strictly and take action against such shop owners. Secondly the people are moving freely which also pose a danger and this way it will not break the chain,” said Paresh Parikh Convener Vadodara Vyapar Vikas Association.
