“I really don’t mind these stupid adults ‘early departure’, with smiling face through the corona, but risking young innocent lives of future generations is criminal. Plan to use police to drill sense in their head. What say?” he added.

“Sir, you can’t call a parent of a stupid or criminal mind. Every parent knows very well about the safety and well-being of their kids while going outside and in-home as well. They are not stupid. Sorry, but your statement is not appreciated,” someone replied.
