This new rule has been mentioned in the guidelines that were issued on Saturday for reopening the textile trading markets in the wake of the novel coronavirus.
The guidelines also asks textile workers to shout “motivational slogans” like “haarse corona jeetse Surat (corona will lose, Surat will win)”.https://t.co/kyNtXmDjc7— The Indian Express (@IndianExpress) July 12, 2020
While speaking about the new rules, Surat Municipal Commissioner BN Pani, in an interview said:
Singing Vande Mataram while opening the shops and Jana Gana Mana while closing the shops is a war cry to create bonding with the nation and fight the coronavirus pandemic.
I will follow all the guidelines to contain the pandemic, laid down by the government, and adopt all safety measures and do my bit to prevent spread of the pandemic.
As per the guidelines, the textile markets will open in an odd-even manner from Monday between 10 AM to 5 PM. Surat has seen a sharp spike in Covid-19 cases since 29th June and most of the cases have been reported from the diamond and textile business clusters.
TBH, we don't know what these new guidelines will achieve and how it will help in fighting the coronavirus and the internet agrees too.
