    I wish every political party follow this gesture and more so educate the Governments of their state to stop festivals by imposing sec 144 in the entire state without any hindrance for economic activity. The law enforcement authorities should ruthlessly follow the SMS regulations - Sanitising, Masking & Social distancing by every imposing a days imprisonment for such citizens, confiscating their driving licence & passport, for a minimum of 6 months; and forbid students from attending classes or exams if they fail to follow SMS procedures.
