Lockdown Orders Mocked at Siddhalingeswara temple, Karnataka

Karnataka has become a state which is continuously defying the orders of social distancing since the time lockdown has been announced by PM Modi. From CM’s participation in a marriage function to a BJP MLA throwing up his birthday feast, social gatherings have not stopped in the state, despite increasing number of COVID-19 positive cases in the state.

In a new incident, hundreds of devotees have participated in a religious festival in Chitapur, Kalaburagi district defying the lockdown and social distancing guideline at a place where three deaths have already taken place due to corona virus. The people have gathered here for a chariot festival. In the meantime, the local BJP MLA has said that no one can touch them, as it is their government in the state.

This has happened on the same day, when Ministry of Home Affairs has addressed the media in which it has reaffirmed the social distancing guidelines and ordered that nowhere in the country more than 5 people should gather.

A case under Sections 188, 143, 269 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) has been registered in this regard against the temple management and those who gathered at the temple site for the chariot festival.
