No plans to impose lockdown in Delhi: Deputy CM Manish Sisodia

Even as COVID-19 cases in Delhi continue to rise at an alarming rate, Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia on Tuesday denied any plans to impose a lockdown or a ‘mini-lockdown’ in the national capital. 

Sisodia said that the huge crowding in markets was a result of the festivals and it is likely to come down as the festive season is now over.

“Delhi government has only asked for an exemption from Home Ministry rules to reduce crowding at markets,” Sisodia said, adding that the government will take measures to reduce crowds at markets in order to curb the spread of coronavirus.
