Indore: District Collector Manish Singh has categorically made it clear that there will be complete lockdown on Sunday August 2, following demands from several quarters to shift the lockdown to another day in view of Rakshanbandhan that falls on Monday.

Collector Singh said that the decision of observing the lockdown on Sundays across the State has been taken by the State Government. Accordingly, there will be lock-down in the city this Sunday too. He, once again, appealed to the public to celebrate the festival by following the health protocol prescribed for defeating Novel Coronavirus.

Markets of both side open

However, following the exemption given to shops from the left-right system by the district Collector from Thursday to August 4, the shops of both sides of the road of central part of the city were opened. However, the fear of coronavirus was visible to some extent, but it was crowded in Rajawada in the afternoon.
