Morcha to shut Darj shops after 12
The Gorkha Jan Mukti Morcha’s (Binoy Tamang camp) Darjeeling Town Committee has decided to shut all shops in the town area in Darjeeling after 12 noon, while also not allowing shops to sell meat and fish even in the morning. The Morcha said that the step was being taken to lessen the crowd in Darjeeling town, where many people are seen violating the lockdown orders and roaming around without any reason.

“Even though only shops selling essential commodities are open at present, people are coming to town without any work or concrete reason. So to lessen this, we appeal to all shopkeepers selling such commodities to open their shops from 7 am to 12 noon only.

“This also includes medicine shops in the town area. Only medicine shops around the hospitals here will remain open for the whole day,” Morcha leader Suraj Sharma said today. “We request the people to stay home and maintain social distancing and not come out if they have no important work.

“Moreover, they can also buy stuff like vegetables and other essential goods in shops in their areas,” he added. The Morcha also maintained that a maximum crowd was seen in meat and fish shops, which will remain closed from tomorrow onwards. In the morning, only shops selling essential commodities like vegetables, medicine shops, ration, fruits, milk, among others, will remain open, the party said.
