A day after the announcement of lockdown, Chief minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao conducted another press meet and came down heavily on general public for violating the lockdown norms. Speaking at the meet, he said that keeping the growing pandemic in view, he will be forced to issued shoot at sight orders of people disobey the norms.
“If people don’t listen to the police, we will need to impose curfews and issue shoot at sight orders. If then also people don’t listen, then we will have to deploy the Army. Is that necessary? Should it come to that? People should reflect on this and exercise restraint. We should not make things worse. Please take this seriously and follow self-isolation sincerely,” KCR said.
