Published

on

Delhi Lieutenant Governor Anil Baijal on Friday rejects two of the moves of the Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal as a part of Unlock 3.

The cancellation and approval tussle over various subjects between the Delhi LG and CM has a very old track record.

As a part of Unlock 3.0, the Delhi CM had allowed hotels to reopen from Saturday and a one-week trial for the weekly markets in the city.

Anil Baijal who is also the chairman of Delhi Disaster Management Authority has ruled that these orders cannot be implemented. e

Yesterday, the Delhi government had decided to allow the operation of hotels, hospitality services and street hawkers.

“These decisions are in continuation of several important decisions taken by CM Arvind Kejriwal in the past few days to ensure Delhi’s economy, which was impacted severely by the lockdown, gets back on track,” said a statement issued by the office of Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal.

“Since hotels of Delhi are no longer linked to hospitals, Delhi government has also decided to allow normal functioning of hotels and hospitality services, as already permitted under Centre’s unlock guidelines,” it said.

The Delhi government has also decided to end the night curfew that was earlier in operation from 10 pm to 5 am.

Delhi, India – Chaos ensues as the Ashram Flyover becomes a traffic nightmare for commuters in the city. But fear not, as a group of marshals has been deployed to restore order and bring some sense to the madness.

The Ashram Flyover, a major artery in the bustling metropolis of Delhi, has been a headache for commuters for quite some time now. The flyover, which connects the city’s south and central areas, sees heavy traffic congestion during peak hours, causing long delays and frayed nerves.

But things have taken a spicy turn as marshals have been brought in to keep things under control. These marshals, donning bright green jackets, have been tasked with managing the traffic flow, ensuring that vehicles move smoothly and without incident.

The marshals have their work cut out for them, as the chaos on the flyover seems to have no end in sight. The heavy traffic, coupled with the city’s notorious lack of lane discipline, has resulted in a free-for-all on the flyover, with vehicles jostling for space and tempers flaring.

But the marshals are undeterred. Armed with whistles and hand signals, they are determined to bring some order to the chaos. And their efforts seem to be paying off, as traffic has started moving more smoothly, and the honking and shouting have reduced considerably.
