With the Delhi government increasing fines for not wearing a mask in public places from Rs 500 to Rs 2,000, the Delhi Police issued 2,110 challans on Thursday for not wearing a mask, taking the total figure of challans to 4,98,984.
Data from the Delhi Police says that while most of the challans have been issued for not wearing a mask, a total of 3,368 challans were issued for spitting at public places and 37,774 challans were issued for violating social distancing norms.
The Delhi police is recording the numbers of violation to eliminate chances of any dispute or claim by the offender later. Major emphasis is being kept on markets like Sadar Bazar, Lajpat Nagar, Sarojini Nagar etc. which attract heavy footfall.
On Thursday, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal said that a fine of Rs 2,000 would be imposed on anyone who is found not wearing a mask at a public place. This announcement comes as cases of the COVID-19 infection are on a rise in the national capital. Earlier, the fine for not wearing a mask was merely Rs 500.
Speaking to mediapersons after an all-party meeting to discuss the COVID-19 situation in Delhi, Arvind Kejriwal said, “I told all parties in the meet that it’s a difficult time for the people of Delhi when COVID cases are rising. It’s not the time for politics, there is an entire lifetime for it. We should set aside politics and allegations for a few days. This is the time to serve people.”
He said that all the parties agreed that this is the time for all of us to become one and serve the people of Delhi.
The Delhi government convened an all-party meeting on Thursday to discuss means to prevent the spread of Coronavirus. The meeting was attended by Delhi’s Chief Minister, Deputy Chief Minister, and health minister, besides BJP state president Aadesh Gupta and Delhi Pradesh Congress president Anil Chaudhary. The Congress and the BJP accused the Delhi government of negligence and inaction for the surge in the number of cases.
According to the online Corona dashboard of the Delhi government at 12:30 pm on Thursday, only 131 COVID-19 ICU beds were available out of 1,362 such beds at various facilities.
