Bhubaneswar, Sept 7 (LocalWire): Special Relief Commissioner (SRC) Pradeep Jena in a virtual press conference today publicly shamed the violators of Coronavirus rules while they were in public places.
In a video released by the government, the official showed some erring citizens from Bhubaneswar and Cuttack who defied the rules of Coronavirus like social distancing and wearing masks in public places.
In the video, a number of people were shown defying the rules. The SRC said that the video was shot on Saturday to show the reality of ground during the Coronavirus outbreak.
He also said that during the last one week rampant violations of the rules have been reported.
“We have realised that in the first week of September people have become lax. A team of officials conducted surprise visits in Bhubaneswar and Cuttack and saw the situation. On Saturday we have done some videography and used drones too to see the situation,” he said.
He also said that orders have been given to police and other enforcement agencies to increase vigilance on defaulters.
“We will increase vigilance for defiance of Coronavirus rules. From Wednesday we will escalate the checking.
We have asked the police department and other authorities to check for the defaulters,” he said.
