“In view of the situation created due to corona in the whole country and Delhi, we have to impose lockdown in Delhi.”
“Most people are following it, but many people are not. I want such people to understand the seriousness of the issue, we are doing this for your health, your life and your family’s life,” said Kejriwal.
The Chief Minister also said that the situation in Delhi is under control.
“The situation in Delhi is still under control, which is good, but it is not a matter of patting the back. Right now we need to control it further. If we controlled it, it would be great,” the CM said.
