Nitin Patel said that there is no consideration of lockdown in Gujarat. But every citizen is required to follow the rule in relaxation. Speaking further, Nitin Patel said that the Rajasthan government has sealed the border based on the situation. Seeing this, some people are spreading false rumors that lockdown is going to increase in Gujarat as well.
Experts in the world are saying that Corona pandemic is going to continue in the world for a long time… Therefore, the interest of 6.30 crore citizens of Gujarat and their livelihood are important. Till now, we have been strictly implementing lockdown… Now a stage has come where we have become acquantained with corona… Now, if business, jobs, agriculture, animal husbandry, labour work continue to be stopped, then not only a person or his family will be in bad condition, but the state’s economic condition will also become very weak. It is not appropriate to let that happen. Relaxations are being given in a phased manner…We are taking steps to encourage economic activities,” said Patel in an interview to a local news channel.
Gujarat Deputy Chief Minister Nitin Patel has said that economic activity is also important as people cannot afford to sit at home fearing the coronavirus pandemic.
