Bengaluru, Mar 24: Karnataka Chief Minister B S Yediyurappa on Tuesday warned the people of taking stringent action for violating the state-wide lockdown order issued in the backdrop of the menace of the spread of COVID-19 disease.
The Chief Minister expressed displeasure over the reports of the people, coming out in the street despite the ban order. Stating that stringent action would be issued from Wednesday, against those who chose to travel to other places including to Bengaluru, he said that “those who wants to leave Bengaluru or coming to Bengaluru will be allowed only today."
"From tomorrow stringent actions would be initiated against those who chose to defy the ban orders," he said. Refuting that there is a rift between Health education minister Dr K Sudhakar and the Health minister B Sreeramulu, he said, "Both are working relentlessly to fight the menace." (UNI)
