Delhi Unlocking policy

Introduction 

Covid-19 has engulfed the whole country. There were inevitable casualties due to the COVID pandemic, due to which the states were forced to impose lockdown. But luckily the situation of covid-19 in the country is improving. There has been a reduction in the number of COVID cases in the country. Looking at all these figures, the national capital of India, Delhi, which had the highest covid-19 case load, decided to unlock the city in phases. We had earlier told you the whole unlocking process in which the odd-even formula was to be used to ensure your unlocking and safety simultaneously. 

But recently, the Delhi High Court expressed specific concerns regarding Delhi unlocking policy. According to the high court, after this unlocking, people have become less cautious about taking covid19 prevention methods. As a result, there is a higher risk of infection under the third wave of COVID-19. 

So in this article, we will tell you all the concerns raised by the Delhi High court regarding the Delhi unlocking policy and the consequent risk of infections.  

What did Delhi HC say about third-wave risk in Delhi? 

 Delhi HC say about third-wave risk in Delhi

Delhi High Court said that after the unlocking of the city, people were seen in large numbers in Delhi markets without following COVID protocols. Delhi High court said that these people were not following social distancing norms, and some were without masks. According to the court, violation of COVID protocols can lead to rising infections in the third wave of the pandemic. Note that the unlocking in Delhi High court has issued notice to the Delhi government and Central Government. In this tortoise High court has asked both the government to prepare a report on unlocking. Further, it has asked the government to take stringent actions against those who violate covid-19 norms like don’t maintain distance, wear masks etc. The court has said that it will look into the matter in a detailed form on 9th July. 

What grounds HC mentioned that could hasten third wave infections? 

The primary basis for issuing the notice concerns the trouble that violation of covid protocols can lead to. The Delhi High court mentioned that the country has already lost several lives during the second wave of the pandemic. Therefore the court, as a citizen of India, is concerned about the images where people are not wearing masks and following COVID norms and putting their life at risk. This kind of behaviour will only lead to the onset of the third wave of the COVID pandemic.  

Who else had expressed concerns over Delhi unlocking 

Not only the High court but also some prominent doctors and experts give warning to people against this wrong behaviour in times of pandemic. They said that the high grounds in the markets, shopping malls, metro etc., without masks and social distancing, could lead to a resurgence of Covid-19 infections. They said that if this violation of COVID norms in business name continued, the whole vaccination drive in India would fail. 

Additional solicitor general of India, Chetan Sharma, also took note of the concerns raised by the Delhi court. He said that all the issues raised by the court would be conveyed to the authorities. 

What are the plans of CM Arvind Kejriwal to mitigate the risks? 

CM Arvind Kejriwal

CM Arvind Kejriwal is constantly monitoring the situation in Delhi. He had set up a task force for tracking the covid third wave. The Delhi government is also trying to ensure speedy delivery and a proper supply of ICU beds and medicines.

A look at the COVID situation in Delhi 

Due to the high daily caseload in the capital, Delhi was under lockdown since 19th April. But presently, the situation is normalising.  The positivity rate has reduced to 0.20%. After the fall in COVID cases, the Delhi government decided to unlock the country in an odd-even manner. The government permitted Shops, malls and restaurants in Delhi to reopen. There are still certain restrictions like 50% vendors in weekly markets, one market in one zone etc. 

The present figures reveal that Delhi saw 158 new Covid cases and ten COVID Deaths yesterday. 

Closing words

The concern raised by the honourable court seems genuine. Although the situation has normalised a bit and people were demanding to unlock, we should not forget that the risk is still there. Therefore we should keep following COVID protocols.

RSS first Super 10 Student batch is ready for JEE and NEET

Forget Anand Kumar’s “Super 30” show. An RSS-supported institution educated the inaugural class of 10 financially poor but deserving students in Lucknow. It will be able to take the JEE or NEET exams to gain admission to IITs and other institutions.

Mahamana Shikshan Sansthan

Mahamana Shikshan Sansthan - Super 10 Student batch is ready for JEE and NEET

The Mahamana Shikshan Sansthan is part of the Sangh’s Bhaurao Devras Seva Nyas. It was established in Arjunganj (Lucknow) in 2019. It is managed by BHU graduates and other top medical and technical schools in the country.

RSS sources indicate that children are chosen from all over the state after they have been physically screened and verified their financial status through house visits.

Plans are in place to induct children who have been orphaned by the Corona pandemic. This follows the Yogi Adityanath government’s offer of Rs 4000 financial assistance to children who have lost both their parents in the Uttar Pradesh floods. 

The campus of the three-story institute is 34,000 sq. feet in size and includes 20 rooms as well as a large hall on its main floor. Students who have attained at least 80% in class 10 are eligible for admission. Although the idea was originally created for students from all over India, it is primarily focused on poorer regions. Poorvanchal and Bundelkhand are two examples of socially poor areas in UP.

After more than ten year in private life, Tewari decided to leave the corporate world and join the coaching institute as a major faculty member. “We are hoping for strong results when the first batch of students takes the admission tests in the coming days,” he said.

Vidya Bharti School

Vidya Bharti School

The Vidya Bharti school in Sector Q, Aliganj will provide free education and boarding for selected children in classes 11 and 12. Like the RSS-supported Saraswati Shishu Mandal, the institution is affiliated with the CBSE board. The college was open to 21 students in its second year.

Applications are being accepted through July 30, and the admissions process has started for the 3rd year. The college hopes to host at least 25 students.

Conclusion

A Lucknow-based RSS backed institution has already enrolled the first batch of 10 meritorious students to be tutored by it. They are now ready for JEE and NEET.
