Bhubaneswar, March 26: Police today said that there is no restriction on opening hours for shops selling essential commodities in the twin cities of Cuttack and Bhubaneswar during the lockdown.
Police Commissioner, Sudhanshu Sarangi took the Twitter to clarify this. “Shops can remain open as long so they want so that customers can be distributed and crowding can be avoided,” said Sarangi.
Sarangi, however, advised people to take a walk while going for essential commodities. “Vegetables, groceries and medicine are available at walking distance in Bhubaneswar. Walking is good. In case something is not available within one kilometre, dial 100,” he added.
