Kolkata police campaign

The current pandemic of coronavirus has put the world into a bigger crisis and situation where the virus is highly contagious and the virus is transmitting rapidly from person to person. In India, the cases are increasing day by day where places like Delhi, Mumbai, Chennai, Bengaluru, and Kolkata are highly affected.

By seeing the current threat and violations of not wearing a mask in public, Kolkata police on Monday propelled the #MaskUpKolkata campaign from Lalbazar not only by spreading the awareness but also by distributing masks in public especially to those who are not wearing the mask in public. The technique this week would be two overlay — one, to connect with most extreme individuals and two, distinguish and heighten the drive to discover and isolate the wrongdoers. 

According to the official at Lalbazar, “This time, the cops won’t find and lathi charge the violators. Rather, police will guarantee that these individuals are right away detached and afterward socially constrained to wear a mask. The thought is to guarantee that each resident requests that their kindred resident is wearing a mask.

Commissioner Anuj Sharma hailed off the program, repeating the need to wear masks. Throughout the following scarcely any days, each police headquarters and traffic watchman will appropriate covers — some of them with the police symbol and the exposure logo on them. “Tableaux have been structured in such a way that all police booths will convey ads with the slogan in Bengali – “Ekhono corona, royeche dapot, baire berole mask e support”

According to the senior traffic department officer “A couple of police headquarters in the nation are asking those not wearing covers to do sit-ups. While that probably won’t be the situation here, the violator here may be approached to join the battle by remaining at the intersection or requesting that he promise before others that s/he was blameworthy and that his/her offense won’t be rehashed.” According to Senior Divisional Officer “This resembles the head protector condition. A few of them are wearing them simply in the wake of spotting cops. They are overlooking that they are to utilize the cover as avoidance against the infection.”
