If the rules of social distancing are broken then seal the area and withdraw the exemption: Kejriwal
Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Monday appealed to people to follow social distancing and other rules through video conference. In particular, he expressed disappointment over the flogging of rules outside the shops. Today, a huge crowd gathered as liquor shops opened in all areas. Even rules such as social distancing and wearing masks were not adopted by the people. The situation deteriorated so much that eventually, shops had to be closed.
Press conference CM Kejriwal said- I appeal to the people of Delhi to ensure three things, wear masks when you go out, follow social distancing and wash and clean your hands frequently.
He said that it is unfortunate that some shops were seen crowded in Delhi today. If we come to know that the social distancing norms have been violated from an area, then we have to seal that area and withdraw the rebate given there.
Kejriwal said that shop owners will have to take this responsibility if the rules of social distancing outside a shop are violated then the shop will be closed.

Family of IB Inspector killed in Delhi violence will get one crore this week
Earlier on Monday morning, a meeting of the Delhi Cabinet was held in which it was decided that an amount of Rs one crore would be given to the family of IB Inspector Ankit Sharma, who was brutally killed in the Delhi riots. Kejriwal said during the meeting that for his family, we had announced a sum of one crore rupees. Today that decision has been approved by the cabinet. It was delayed due to Corona. Hopefully, his family will get the amount this week.
