    I have a suggestion. It can be like Monday a particular area like kankanady can keep shops open, the next day Jeppu or some other area can be open. Atleast this way people may not rush and Panic buy.

    Sir... Please start some door to door supply of essential items. Today morning i seen a huge rush in Padavinangady More outlet. If people rush like this than what is the use of lockdown. Corporaters should take intiative to supply the essential items with protection of police force to avoid rush. Thank you

    MP has set up a war room. Anyone can call war room office for any help including medical & grocery. There is arrangement for home delivery. That is what some some news papers reported.

    Yess correct .. Instead of starting war room he should take initiative of supply of essential items to door to door. To avoid rush in market and shops. They also give credit facility to poor people or daily wages people. Than only this lock down will get succeed. Anyway now these MLAs and corporaters should take responsibilitys in their area.

    Shops will remain open, but how will people reach them if you do not allow people to go to those shops. The police seem to have a nice time beating up people as seen in the videos that are circulating around. Please make announcements on how people are supposed to access the essential services.

    I feel 6am to 12 noon is too much. Only 2 hours is adequate

    If the shops are allowed to be open for two hours only, then it'll be even more crowded than it is in this six hour window!

    Thank you sir, Good Move. Better one family member can go and buy essentials within these hours and others should remain at home for 21days - Please respect - God Bless you all.
