Discipline Outside a Grocery Store in Gujarat - Can we resonate with this?
India Lockdown has begun today and the perceptions and apprehensions of the people are conflicting with the responsibilities of the administration and the dearth of sensitisation of Police towards the needs of the public.
Udaipur, like any other city, has shown true resilience in the form of public support to the administration and at the same time administration and police are leaving no stone unturned in ensuring that they are able to perform their duty towards the people of the city, under the current circumstances.
However, since the lockdown was announced yesterday evening, some people would need some extra effort on their part to prepare for being at home regularly for 21 days at a stretch.
One such incidence reflected the lack of sensitivity of the police and lack of empathy as well....this video shows how a man (in the picture above), was carriyng a gas cylinder from Bedla to his home in Loera. The police stopped his vehicle and rather than hear him out or understand his situation, threw out the cylinder and took his car to the police station.
On the other hand, some residents of town, were seen serving tea and Chhach to the police while the police were doing their efforts on the road too ensure that law and order and discipline is maintained.
People are staying low and only leaving the safety of their homes to purchase the necessities for a routine day - food, water, milk, medicine, etc. However, the lack of caution and exercise of discipline is missing. Some people are really not taking care and creating rush in local groceries inspite of warnings.
