Gpa may extend ‘janata curfew’ by two days: CM

Panaji, March 22 (IANS) Roads and public spaces in Goa wore a deserted look on Sunday, in view of the ‘janata curfew’ announced by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, even as Chief Minister Pramod Sawant said the state government might extend the curfew by two more days.

“A final decision has not been taken,” Sawant said.

“The ‘janata curfew’ on request of PM Modi and the state government has been 100 per cent successful. We should not step out of our homes after 9 p.m. too. Everyone needs to co-operate to take on coronvirus. Please co-operate with the police. I thank all doctors and medical staff on behalf of the state government,” Sawant said in a video message.

Calling for ‘janata curfew’, Modi said it was necessary to prevent spread of coronavirus.

Goa’s beaches, markets and towns wore a desolate look. On Saturday, the Goa government imposed Section 144 of CrPC under which it mandated business establishments, including restaurants, to remain shut on Sunday.
