BanglaHunt Desk: “Practically lockdown” across the state from tomorrow. This lockdown will continue till May 30. Then the next decision will be made according to the rate of infection. All public transport including bus, train, metro, ferry, auto will be closed during this lockdown. However, taxis can be run on an emergency basis. Night curfew will also continue from 9 pm to 5 am. Markets, grocery stores and retail stores will be open from 8 am to 10 am. The government has also given permission to open sweet shops from 10 am to 5 pm.
All liquor stores will remain closed during the lockdown. And so that this time there is no shortage of liquor like last time, long lines have been seen in liquor shops in different parts of the state. All domestic and foreign liquor shops were open till 6 pm today. And on that occasion, liquor lovers have bought liquor with long lines in liquor stores.
On the one hand, many people in the state are thinking, how to run the family in the next 14 days? Then a picture was taken of the rush to buy liquor in the liquor store. Not only Kolkata, but the entire state has the same picture. Many people have left the video of this incident on social media. Liquor lovers claim that the price of alcohol has gone up abnormally in the lockdown. Last time I had to buy wine with 2 times, 3 times money. And that’s why the wine is already being kept.
