Indore: On the first day of unlocking the city, the district minister in-charge Tulsi Silawat took a meeting of intellectuals and prominent people of the city and received valuable suggestions from them on how to tackle the coronavirus. At the meeting held at Residency Kothi, Silawat said that success in tackling the virus could only be achieved if the people adopt corona-appropriate behaviour.
Silawat said that corona infection in the district is completely under control, and things are moving towards normalcy.From today, economic activities in the district have been unlocked, but now there is a need to be cautious so that the coronavirus does not spread. He said people will have to use masks, maintain social distancing and use sanitisers. He said people will have to be motivated to adopt such behaviour and urged public representatives and opinion-makers to help the administration in sensitising the public.
Silawat said, "Just as the people have made the city number one in cleanliness, they should also make the city number one in adopting corona-appropriate behaviour."
MP Lalwani too stressed the need to follow corona protocol, now that economic activities have started. He cautioned that though cases are decreasing, it does not mean that the coronavirus has gone. Carelessness can again lead to a spike in the number of cases.
Collector Manish Singh said that if the influential section of the society comes forward to create public awareness then it will pay good dividends.
Additional advocate general Pushyamitra Bhargava, BJP's Gaurav Randive, Padma awardees Janak Palta, Bhalu Mondhe and Sushil Doshi, international hockey player Mir Ranjan Negi, VC of DAVV Indore Renu Jain, SAIMS director Dr Vinod Bhandari, Dr Sumit Shukla among others gave their important suggestions at the meeting.
