Read this article and know “how APSCW openly flouting official norms of Social Distancing and mandatory wearing of masks in public”.
From the Editor desk- Today, Arunachal Pradesh State Commission for Women ( APSCW ) issued one press release highlighting its programs. The commission attached few photographs of the programme and after seeing these photographs you will be surprised.
The Women’s Commission team visited the office of an NGO where the team gathered for a group photo. In the above photograph ( send by APSCW ) you can clearly see how they are violating social distancing rules by sitting so close with each other while being photographed.
In an another Photograph ( send by APSCW ), 8 people are seen, but only 2 are wearing masks while making a mockery of social distancing.
Now the question arises that whether action should be taken against them or not after the appearance of these photographs as because at this time section 144 has been imposed in the district under which any gathering of more than 7 people has been prohibited.
The Prime Minister, Chief Minister, officials of District Administration and Health Department are repeatedly appealing to the people for using masks and maintaining social distance. The Ministry of Home Affairs also ordered the use of masks and maintaining social distancing with provision of punishment for anyone violating this order.
The main take away from this is that if even seemingly educated people of the society are ignoring Government appeals and violating official norms during such a time when the entire world is fighting against covid-19, what more is left to say.
