Mysuru, May 22:- “Government might have permitted Jubilant Generics to restart. I am unaware of it. We will get clarity once the Home Minister visits Mysuru,” said District in-charge Minister S T Somashekar.

He was speaking to media persons in the city on Friday (May 22).

“Not only Jubilant Generics, but all the factories have also now been permitted to restart. Jubilant needed government permission. Even the factory administration had requested the government to permit it to reopen,” he said.

“No coronavirus cases have been reported in Mysuru today. 200 reports are waiting. 500 people have already been tested and only 2 patients tested positive for coronavirus,” he said.

“We have to make a separate action plan for Mysuru. Check-posts of the district can’t be removed at any cost. Checking has to be tightened in Mandya region. A request regarding the same will be made to Chief Minister B S Yediyurappa. Those who have come from Mandya and Malavalli will have to undergo quarantine to make sure that the virus doesn’t spread in Mysuru,” he added.

“Social distancing is being maintained in buses and trains as well. Only those who have undergone testing are going in buses and trains. Wedding events are permitted but only 50 people are allowed to attend. I have collected information regarding a wedding held in Nanjangud. Superintendent of Police has also clarified that only 60 people attended that wedding. If marriages have been scheduled for Sundays, they can be held,” he said.

The minister held guddali puja (ground breaking ceremony) for various development works worth Rs 5 crore in Chamaraja Constituency. MLA L Nagendra, BJP leaders and officials were present on the occasion.

During the guddali puja, all the norms of social distancing were violated. People gathered in large numbers standing next to each other during the event. (MR/KS)
