Extension of Lockdown Creates a Whole New Scenario

Till yesterday, the lockdown time was till 10 am, and people had to wrap up their work and go back by sharp 10. None were allowed on roads after 10 am. However, today, due to the extension of lockdown time, people were on the roads till 1 pm. Also, due to the grace period, a good number of people were seen on the roads till 2 pm. 


The roads used to be full ever since the Telangana government announced lockdown as the window was just 4 hours. People not only had to finish their work but also return home by then. The police, too, were strict and did not allow anyone loitering on the roads for no reason. 


But today was different. People came in crowds and insisted on shopkeepers serving them as the lockdown window is now for 7 hours, with a grace period of 1 hour. Though some shopkeepers kept reminding the customers to leave by around 12.30, the customers wouldn’t budge as they had that extra 1 hour. 


The traffic was heavy when the lockdown was relaxed. Many areas experienced traffic jams. The vegetable markets and grocery stores had the highest footfall. Tiffin centres, roadside eateries, fruit and vegetable stalls were seen lined up along main roads in areas such as Vanasthalipuram, Dilsukhnagar, LB Nagar, Uppal, etc. 


One interesting point to note was that there was clear demarcation for two-wheelers, four-wheelers and authorised vehicles and ambulances in areas like Nampally, Uppal, LB Nagar and other areas. 


However, by 2 pm, the police came out and made sure that no one was on the roads and those simply moving around for no particular reason had their vehicles seized. At MJ Market, some artists were seen painting murals as a part of an initiative taken up by the Goshamahal police station. 


Meanwhile, state chief secretary Somesh Kumar travelled in the Hyderabad Metro to check the safety measures being taken up by the service. Metro trains will now leave their terminal stations and return to the destination stations by 2 pm. 


As for vendors, they are happy that the extended hours are giving them a chance to sell their produce and wares since the time is ample.
