Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Monday said the Delhi government will withdraw all lockdown relaxations from areas where people do not maintain social distancing. The announcement comes amid reports of people flouting social distancing norms at liquor shops in many areas in the national capital which were re-opened on Monday as authorities allowed all activities permitted by the central government.

Kejriwal said it is sad that people were not maintaining the mandatory six feet or two metre distance from one another at some shops and requested everyone to not take any risk.

“Shops are not going to be closed. We will have to take strict steps. We all will have to behave like responsible citizens,” Kejriwal said while addressing an online media briefing.

“We have to defeat coronavirus. I appeal to people to wear masks, maintain social-distancing and sanitise their hands,” Kejriwal said.
