Dial 112 if anyone holds parties in Chandigarh: UT Adviser to residents

Coronavirus Chandigarh Bapu Dham Sector 26 | UT Adviser Manoj Parida

In an order to contain the spread of coronavirus in Chandigarh, UT Adviser Manoj Parida has asked the residents to report to the administration if anyone found throwing parties or hosting social gatherings in their neighbourhood. The move comes after a coronavirus-positive GMCH-32 employee held a gathering at his house in Bapu Dham Colony, Sector 26, and infected many people.

“Now I appeal to residents to report against neighbours if they are holding parties/social gatherings /get-togethers, in violation of curfew. Just call 112 or send a video clip as evidence. This seems to be the only way to deal with these enemies of society,” Parida tweeted.

Chandigarh has so far reported 50 positive cases of coronavirus. Five new cases were reported on Tuesday. All of them are the residents of Sector 30, Chandigarh. Meanwhile, UT Adviser Manoj Parida has constituted a committee chaired by AK Sinha, Finance Secretary to examine and recommend the steps to be taken by the Administration in the post curfew period in Chandigarh.
