New Delhi: The Pinarayi government has filed an affidavit in the Supreme Court in response to the granting of more concessions on the occasion of Eid. The government told the Supreme Court that the exemptions were granted after consultation with experts. Kerala responded to a petition filed by Delhi Malayalee PKD Nambiar seeking cancellation of the three-day exemption granted to Bakreed.
Kerala also clarified that the lock down cannot be extended indefinitely. Regulation and the recession have begun to affect people’s lives. According to an affidavit filed by Chief Secretary VP Joy in the Supreme Court, Bakreed was granted a waiver by opposition parties.
Only a few areas were allowed to open shops. The government informed the court that Kerala was trying to reduce the TPR.
The concessions were announced for three days in Kerala on the occasion of Eid-ul-Fitr. In addition to the essentials shops in the A, B and C categories, clothing shops, shoe shops, electronics shops, fancy shops and gold shops can be opened on all three days.
