CHANDIGARH: In a clear signal, which may press the panic button among people travelling between Haryana and New Delhi, Haryana home minister Anil Vij on Monday hinted at sealing of borders with the national capital.
Vij was reacting to the issue related to sharp increase of COVID count in Haryana in the past 10 days. According to information more than 70 percent cases are from NCR and are linked to Delhi.
Vij also flayed Delhi government orders of treating patients from Delhi only by saying, “you cannot deny treatment to anybody on the account of not the resident of the state. We don’t appreciate this decision of Arvind Kejriwal-led Delhi government”.
So far as COVID situation is concerned, we are equally worried and monitoring the situation, he added.
Vij minced no words in blaming free movement of traffic between two states which has made the commuters the COVID carriers.
“We always opposed the opening of borders. We were forced to do so in the wake of MHA guidelines. We are monitoring the situation and if required we shall seal borders or put restrictions in place,” said the health and home minister.
Vij prayed for better health of CM Kejriwal and also advocated for the standard operating procedures for public figures, politicians etc.
