Lifting weekend curfew: Congress criticizes govt’s move


Team Udayavani, Jan 21, 2022, 6:30 PM IST

Bengaluru: Congress party in Karnataka took to Twitter to criticize the state government’s latest move to withdraw the weekend curfew on Friday.

Congress accused the government of imposing the weekend curfew to “control” its Mekedatu Padayatre and not to stop the spread of Covid in the state.

A tweet in Kannada on the party’s official handle read “5 thousand Covid Cases – Weekend Curfew… When 50 Thousand Covid Cases – Weekend Curfew Returns!… The curfew was enacted not to control the corona, but to control the Padayatre!”

“@BJP4Karnataka has mocked the people for political interest and should seek people’s forgiveness,” the party demanded.

Earlier in the day, the Karnataka government had decided to lift the weekend curfew at a crucial meeting chaired by CM Basavaraj Bommai about the covid situation in the state. Briefing the media after the meeting, minister R Ashoka spoke said that the chief minister has accepted the views of all experts and had agreed to lift the weekend curbs. However, night curfew will continue, he added.
