Chitralis reject idea of closing markets for three days in a week
CHITRAL: Residents of Chitral town have expressed surprise over the latest government decision of closing markets for three days in a week as was done prior to Eid. Shoppers and shopkeepers said the logic behind the sporadic and inconsistent method of imposing a lockdown. People were of the opinion that SOPS for prevention of the virus Covid were being violated everywhere from banks to mosques to stores etc. How would closing the markets for three days help in controlling, where rest of the four days social distancing would not be observed anyway. People have appealed to the government to deal with the situation sensibly and not make life further difficult for the people.
