Mangaluru, March 30, 2020:  The DK District Congress Committee has taken strong objection to the total lockdown  announced by the District Administration since Friday and described the move as ’unscientific.’



A delegation of the Congress met Deputy Commissioner Sindhu Rupesh on Sunday and submitted a memorandum seeking reconsideration of the order. The memorandum pointed out that the common man was subject to hardship as he is unable to  step out of the house.

The  memorandum has urged the  administration to allow functioning of grocery shops from 8 am to 12 noon every day. On the arrangements made by the MCC for online supply of essentials, the Congress said this arrangement may be beneficial to only 20% of the population and that most including poor are unable to avail online services.

 MLA U T Khader, MLC Ivan D’Souza, District Youth Congress President Mithun Rai, Corporators Naveen D’Souza,  Shashidhar Hegde and others were in the  delegation.
