Pratapgarh, Sep 10 (IANS) The district administration has ordered that Uday Pratap Singh, father of Independent MLA Raghuraj Pratap Singh aka Raja Bhaiya, be put under house arrest in Kunda because he was insistent on organising the recitation of the Hanuman Chalisa and organising a community kitchen on Muharram.

The Sub Divisional Magistrate of Kunda, Mohanlal Gupta said, “Uday Pratap Singh will remain under house arrest till Tuesday night. Section 144 has been imposed in the area and heavy police force has been deployed.”

Registering their protest against the house arrest of Singh, the local traders kept their shops closed.

On August 30, Singh filed a petition before the Lucknow bench of the High Court seeking permission for recitation of Hanuman Chalisa from September 9 to 12 and for organising a community kitchen on September 10.

The District Magistrate sent a report to the High Court saying that the permission to organise a community kitchen on Muharram might disturb the peace in the area, hence permission can’t be granted.

Singh organises a community kitchen at the Hanuman temple on the Prayagraj-Lucknow highway in Shekhpura village every year on Muharram. But for the last two years, the administration has not been permitting him to organise the community kitchen.

Shashi Tharoor

New Delhi, March 29 : Congress leader Shashi Tharoor on Sunday attacked Prime Minister Narendra Modi for not giving enough time to the people to prepare before a nationwide lockdown was imposed.

Taking to Twitter, Tharoor said in Hindi “na hee tab taiyari thee na hee ab taiyari hai, tab bhi janata haari thi, ab bhi janata haari hai” which roughly translates as “Neither there was a preparation then (referring to demonetization), nor now. That time also the common man was at the receiving end, so is today.”

The Congress MP compared the ongoing situation with the demonetisation days by sharing two pictures jointly on the micro-blogging site.

He compared the huge crowd of migrants standing in long queues to catch a bus to return to their native place at Delhi’s Anand Vihar and Ghaziabad’s Kaushambi bus terminals with the one seen outside banks during demonetisation.

On one picture he wrote Notebandi (Demonetisation) and on the other it was written,’Lockdown’.

Hours earlier, Congress leader Kapil Sibal also attacked Prime Minister Narendra Modi for allegedly making no preparations before announcing the 21-day nationwide lockdown due to novel coronavirus spread.

A 21-day lockdown in the country was announced by the Prime Minister as a containment measure taken by the government to break the chain of transmission of the highly contagious COVID-19, after which thousands of migrant labourers started leaving Delhi by walking in the absence of any mode of transport.

Arvind Kejriwal

New Delhi, March 28 (IANS) Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Saturday urged the migrants to stay back in the city during the lockdown and said his government is serving lunch and dinner to over four lakh people at more than 800 locations.

Speaking to the media through a digital press conference, he said the government has operationalised 568 Hunger Relief Centres in schools, apart from 238 night shelters.

“We have the capacity to feed lunch and dinner to approximately 4 lakh persons daily,” Kejriwal said. He also said that apart from this, mobile vans are also deployed to arrange food for those who cannot reach the locations.

“Although there is some issue, I am expecting that these will be streamlined in a day or so.”

Kejriwal said the Aam Aadmi Party MLAs and party workers are reaching out to the migrants, and have been successful to stop a number of migrants.

“Lockdown should be implemented seriously. If we keep moving, the purpose of lockdown will be wasted. I urged the migrants at the border to come back to Delhi. We even opened night shelters in some of the schools around the border areas,” Kejriwal said.

He also said that the ration from April in around 1,000 ration shops has reached and will soon be distributed.

“Coronavirus is spreading very fast. In the countries which we thought were highly developed are facing a serious crisis. We should learn from different nations.”

The nationwide lockdown has started from Tuesday midnight, following which migrant labourers have started moving to their homes in Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, West Bengal and Odisha.
