Night curfew order, issued earlier, has been withdrawn after reviewing the situation on the suggestion of technical advisory committee: Chief minister’s office, Karnataka.
Karnataka has withdrawn a night curfew – imposed a day earlier amid concerns over a mutated and rapidly-spreading coronavirus strain – hours before it was to come into effect. The curfew had been called for restrictions in movement between 10 pm and 6 am till January 2.
BSY has urged citizens to impose self-restraint by wearing face masks and ensuring social distancing. He asked citizens to avoid “unnecessary” travel and strictly follow Covid-19 regulations of the government “to help stop the spread of the virus.”
Leader of the Opposition Siddaramaiah said the decision to impose a night curfew itself was amusing.
