Mangaluru: Dakshina Kannada returns back to normalcy, cloth, footwear shops crowded


Daijiworld Media Network – Mangaluru (MS)

Mangaluru, Jun 24: As the lockodwn restrictions were relaxed in Dakshina Kannada (DK), commercial activities got momentum on Wednesday June 23. People thronged cloth and footwear shops.

The number of people were less in vegetables and meat shops as they were open during the lockdown period also. Most of the shop owners were seen cleaning and setting their shops. After 11 am, crowd swelled in the city.

Most of the shops were open in taluk centers of Sullia, Puttur, Kadaba, Bantwal, Beltangady and Moodbidri. However, the shops closed at 2 pm as per the guideline given by the district administration. Though the district administration gave permission to serve food in hotels for 50% of seating capacity, most of the hotels preferred giving parcels only. Customers were also less in hotels.

Traffic was heavy in the city of Mangaluru. As Smart City works are also in progress there were traffic chaos right from morning. Streets of M G Road, Hampankatta, Bunts Hostel and near Town Hall saw maximum traffic. Police had a tough time controlling the commuters. After 2 pm, policemen beefed up the checking of vehicles. People who were roaming without valid reason were fined by the cops.

    Hope and pray, that the general public, will not become lethargic, throw caution to the wind !! The new highly infectious " Delta plus" has been detected in Madhya Pradesh, Maharashtra and Kerala... Professors from IIT Kanpur, have predicted, a potent third wave of Covid19, across India.... The peak is likely to be between Sept and October... The possibility of 5 lakhs cases, is the worst possible scenario !!!!
