Punjab saw a mass congregation in the political rallies with leader and supporters marching with the caution to the wind.
With the surge if Omicron cases across the Indian states, the poll-bound Punjab announced new restrictions from January 15.
The Punjab government order states “all those adult persons who have not yet taken both the doses of COVID vaccination should remain at their residences and should not visit public places, markets, functions, public transport and religious places.”
Congress leader New and Renewable Energy Minister Raj Kumar Verka says, “Punjab will adhere to the guidelines. We have laws to enforce the guidelines. But leaders and people have to be cautious and responsible as well. The Congress government in the state is stepping up efforts to vaccinate people.”
