'Mangaluru fully shut from tomorrow, essential goods to be delivered at doorsteps - MP Nalin


Daijiworld Media Network - Mangaluru (SP)

Mangaluru, Mar 25: Dakshina Kannada MP Nalin Kumar Kateel, has said that the city will be completely shut down from Thursday, March 26 onwards.

He said that the people were given time to go out of their houses to buy essentials today. But from tomorrow, this will not be allowed. "We are discussing with officials of all departments about ways to manage the situation. Essential things and facilities people need, will be delivered at their doorsteps. We are sorting out how to deliver the items on behalf of the government and mode of delivery of items to apartment complexes," he clarified.

On the issue of large number of patients coming into Dakshina Kannada from Kasargod, Nalin noted that highest number of patients had come into the city yesterday from Kerala. "Therefore, the district administration has taken a decision. Under the present circumstances, the hospitals in the city would not be sufficient for our purpose. Therefore, it has been decided not to allow any vehicles including ambulances into the city. All the ambulances would be blocked from entering Dakshina Kannada district at Talapady border. The district borders have been sealed and vehicles coming in are being turned back," he explained.

    Please let us know.
    It's true that people are not following social distancing.

    Is there any sense in such kind of a spontaneous diktat! This is not Germany or Finland that they will be able to supply essential commodities from house to house in such a densely populated place?

    What about life saving medicines; how will the orders go to the chemist, and who is going to supply the same to each house?

    People who have zilch idea of the logistical impossibility in implementation of such ideas can only think of doing so! That too, he is in discussion with the authorities, but before finalising details issues a diktat!

    Instead of implementing a rational idea, these sort of pseudo plans will create utter chaps & makes matter out of control!

    This is only rise panic in people's mind. City ways of living compared to a small town is so different. Online delivery. Are you joking?

    Govt should have taken measures much longer when the corona virus entered india. They didn't quarantine much people as needed and now all of us are suffering this. And now to remove the guilt of the mistakes made by the govt we all here should suffer this lockdown without proper necessities for our daily living.

    Yes I encourage people to stay at home but where are the assurance that food supply will be there at any cost. This is why the panic. No clarity on anything. Every govt at every state has their own versions. People are being belted just for going out to buy groceries.

    IS THIS HOW GOVT WANTS TO HANDLE THE LOCKDOWN. ???

    Statements of Police Chief and (today's full list of) home ministry complete differs from Nalinanna's statement. All are fully confusing us. Thinking of 6 to 12 , the shops will remain open in order to avoid gathering many stayed at home. Now, after the curfew govt is planning... and it will take time in implementing and supplying the essentials at the door step... . It's not easy task for them also. In this only strong ones will succeed in getting the items and others not....same like municipal water... At least to make dal also, we need other ingredients like jeerige, mustard, chilli, onion etc. May I request to the authorities to allow people to buy in the morning two hours and everything two hours...

    Sensationalism at its worst. Spend money on testing instead of home delivery which is logistically impossible. Big disigions without any thoght of logistics of implementation seem to be the hallmark of BJP. We had CM tell people not to leave bangaluru to spread the virus to villages and within hours of lockdown thousands were leaving in packed vehicles for villages and CM did volte face and said people are allowed to leave till midnight!

    Yes, Full Shut down should be ordered.

    Elected People's representative from each Panchayat/Municipal/Corporate should take care of supply of daily commodity to his/her respective ward on daily basis for 21 days with proper safety measures like wearing mask & gloves.
    Each day 1 or 2 family members should come forward and assist the elected member in distributing essential commodities.

    We need to regulate the number of people coming out. We can learn form other countries. South Korea has regulated the number by birth date.

    Keep shops and medical stores open for money durations so that ppl can get all the essential commodities.. Already panic buying has set in and essentials like sugar, milk, wheat weren't available. Very long queues outside all shops and medical stores.. If such outrageous rules are put in place the situation tomorrow will be worse.. This causes even more crowding in the shops and defeats the entire idea of social isolation.. Think smart and act fast..

    It will create a panic . Keep shops open for longer duration in each area, following strict guidelines or some routine should be fixed and adhered to.

    @Greeshma
    Don't compare Belgium to India and not even karnataka. belgium is a country having population about 1.1 crores where in Karnataka there are more than 6 crore people. And in India only 2 to 3 crore people pay tax overall. And again to say it's easy to pay the workers in money. Raising voice for poor is good. But not in this way.

    According to me government should provide food for poor people and start a home delivery system so that people don't have to go outside of home. When they take waste from every home in a vehicle this would not be a difficult task for the government 🙂

    Please give a certain time for people to get what they need on daily basis. So that people don't hoard things in panic. Let everyone take precautions. One person per family to get what they need. Banks also people will have work not everyone is on online banking . So please keep all these open for certain time . Upto 12 also no problem but let not people make misuse of this .

    They should go area wise n announce only 1 person per house should b allowed n also strict distance frm person to person should b maintained. I saw on tv channel they r drawing some circles on the ground n person is supposed to stay in that. And also there will be some one selfish among us . see that no one is allowed to buy extra so that everyone gets the daily essentials. Better to carry milk and announce. And dont close it by 12 keep open for longer hrs so that there is no panic buying.

    Let people plan & be prepared for small sacrifices.

    More importantly help poor and daily wage earners.

    Cars/Bykes are freely moving today even at 3.00pm. Orders must be strictly enforced.

The public expects service for doctors n hospitals with low or zero cost during this crisis but loot money frm the buyers.

    It's really advisable to keep essential stores open for a couple of hours. Say 06:00am till 10:00 am. Not even until 12:00 hrs.
    May be this could be done area wise, so that area people will go out for buying that day.
    There's no way our people will understand seriousness of the situation and be cooperative.

    The shops have to be kept open for a longer time frame of 6am - 7pm, instead of 6am - 12 noon, to ensure there is no crowding at shops and no panic buying. Some of the grocery stores were closed before 11 am today...which makes it more difficult. Essential items such as milk, sugar, wheat, etc were not available in certain stores.
    There were long queues outside the nearest pharmacy to my building. I have a newborn at home and needed diapers urgently. My husband had to hunt a pharmacy where newborn diapers are available along with no queue.

    This is the scenario at the beginning of the 21 day lockdown. I wonder how things are going to be as the days progress... A complete shutdown is going to make things worse.
