Mumbai: West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee said on Friday that all religious places in the state will open on June 1, where no more than 10 people will be allowed to visit at any time.
Mamta said, “Temples, gurudwaras, mosques and all religious places in the state have been closed. They will open from June 1 but no more than 10 people will be allowed at any time. For any assembly at religious places Will not be allowed.”
Religious places across the country have been closed since March 25 to prevent the spread of coronovirus.
Banerjee also said that social distance norms are not being followed in labour-specific trains as they are running at full capacity.
The West Bengal Chief Minister said, “The law is the same for all but why are all trains running at full capacity? Why are the Railways not doing social discrimination? Passengers are not being given water and food in trains.”
“In the name of Shramik Express, Indian Railways is running the Corona Express. Why are the extra trains not being run? I was once a Railway Minister. I had extended coaches, but now why can’t this be done? The Railways are bringing people from hotspot areas in huge numbers,” she added.
