Bhopal: Even as three cities in Madhya Pradesh have been put under complete lockdown every Sunday, Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chauhan made a special appeal to the people. Informing about the new ‘Sankalp Abhiyan’, Chauhan said that from March 23 at 11 am and 6 pm a siren will be rung in appeal to people to put on their masks and practice social distancing.
He urged the people to to follow the resolve strictly as soon as the siren is played.
Keeping the upcoming Holi festival in mind he said, “I will talk to the Crisis Management Committee of the state. It will be decided on how to celebrate the upcoming festival. He said that the infection is moving towards creating a serious crisis.”
23 मार्च को शाम को 7 बजे भी दो मिनट के लिए सायरन बजेगा और हम पुनः यह सुनिश्चित करेंगे कि हमने और हमारे आसपास के लोगों ने मास्क लगाया है या नहीं।
मास्क लगाना बहुत ज़रूरी है, इसलिए यह संकल्प अभियान हम शुरू कर रहे हैं। स्थिति हाथों से बाहर निकले, इसके पहले ही हम संभल जाएँ।
