Bhubaneswar, Sep 16: Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik today expressed displeasure over poor Covid-19 enforcement drive in the twin cities of Cuttack and Bhubaneswar.
Patnaik while reviewing the Covid-19 situation in the State directed the Director General of Police to intensify the drive against the violators. “While I get good feedback about enforcement activities throughout the State, the feedback regarding Bhubaneswar-Cuttack Commissionerate area is not encouraging. I have been repeatedly harping on this. The DGP must directly look into this and do the needful as being done throughout the State,” said the CM.
The CM appreciated the efforts of health functionaries and Covid Warriors as more than 1.25 lakh persons have recovered from Covid-19. More than one lakh have recovered in the last 5 weeks itself.
Patnaik further directed the concerned district Collectors to scale up and monitor MGNREGS and all livelihood activities.
