Delhi’s deputy chief minister Manish Sisodia on Saturday wrote to Union home minister Amit Shah seeking immediate directions to LG Anil Baijal to allow hotels and weekly markets in the national capital.
Sisodia, in his letter to Shah, wrote that 8 per cent of Delhi’s business and employment are hit due to the coronavirus disease outbreak. “Due to the closure of weekly markets, five lakh families are sitting at home. Now when they are hopeful that with control over coronavirus in Delhi they will get an opportunity to restart their business, binding them under the decision of closure is unfair to Delhi’s economic situation and hopes of lakhs of people,” Sisodia wrote.
